Divorce means starting again though some parts have died.
Divorce makes little sense to extended young family.
Divorce is one big sigh…
Divorce is exhausting.
Divorce is joining a party you didn’t wish to be invited to.
Divorce is an ugly word.
Divorce screams shame.
Divorce aims at your heart and celebrates the bullseye.
Divorce cocks the gun and shoots straight.
Divorce is sitting alone on a hill and it starts to rain.
Divorce makes it hard to smile.
Divorce pain is found in your eyes.
Though divorce ushers in a new beginning, the end keeps resurrecting.
I liked your poem. All so true and the pain is all-pervasive and so deep… and most of those around you just don’t get it, nor could they, unless they’ve been through it. Very hard on so many levels! “ living life being stalked by the past.” Great way to put it. Perfect.
