This is no enigma
Just a shameful stigma
We have split apart for good
A malevolent stance taken as it should

Our contract now null and void
Desiring to inhabit a separate planetoid
Once classed as my property
Now free of the depravity

For what we may have created
now in despair, not appreciated
for we'll pay for our sacrilege
Once we dine with our heritage

So now we divide our surrounding
separate haemorrhoids not corresponding
Take our past in unrelated directions
no longer our paths have intersections

For we are at the end of the road
although different, still a toad
This heartfelt decision
Has caused this incision

    $\begingroup$ @AE Lovely thought process, I do mean haemorrhoids, but at the same time you have to ask your self is their deeper meaning to haemorrhoids. Or is there a meaning thats shallow. $\endgroup$ – Oblongamous Dec 10 '14 at 14:01

  • $\begingroup$ @FlorianF You could say it is shameless advertising, as they all share a common name. You could on the other hand assume its just my calling card, my cathphrase if you will. Either way I doubt is has any bearing or relevance to the riddle rather than to let you know its my riddle. $\endgroup$ – Oblongamous Dec 10 '14 at 17:38
  • $\begingroup$ @FlorianF No worries, As normal and friendly your question was. There are some others who will criticise what I say no matter what, so I thought I'd beat them to it :D $\endgroup$ – Oblongamous Dec 10 '14 at 17:45

Answer

Divorce, the end of marriage


This is no enigma
Just a shameful stigma
We have split apart for good
A malevolent stance taken as it should

The former spouses have separated. It's pretty shameful, and it's typically the result of hatred towards each other.

Our contract now null and void

Marriage is a legally-binding contract in many jurisdictions; divorce terminates that contract.

Desiring to inhabit a separate planetoid

The former spouses live separately.

For what we may have created
now in despair, not appreciated

Children are inevitably upset as a result of a divorce.

for we'll pay for our sacrilege

In many religions, marriage is considered sacred, and divorce sacrilegious.

Once we dine with our heritage

Inheritance problems can come up as a result of divorce. It is impossible to stay out of hell, your heritage = what has been passed down to you = DNA. Your past relations in hell.

Take our past in unrelated directions
no longer our paths have intersections

The former spouses separate and never want to meet up again.

This heartfelt decision
Has caused this incision

In many legal systems, divorce is a decision made by a judge in court.

although different, still a toad

the reference to the frog turning into a prince happily ever after in marriage. This now divorced, your still a frog

So now we divide our surrounding
separate haemorrhoids not corresponding

haemorrhoids = piles, the metaphoric description of dividing the assets of the marriage and splitting them, which are never correspond. Ones pile is always worth more.

Once classed as my property
Now free of the depravity

It was once common knowledge that the wife was property of the man (still is in some communities). Now free of being an object through divorce.
