If you are in need of our Divorce Poems page then commiserations or celebrations are yours. It is a difficult time and is similar to an operation severing the offending or painful organ - it takes time to heal - you have to find a new way of moving around etc..
You will probably be in need of some humor whilst on this journey!
Most everyone has had to go through the pain of having a relationship end. It's never easy, but there is help if you're not feeling so well.
For all sad words of tongue and pen, the saddest are these, It might have been."
John Greenleaf Whittier
I was the boy/girl for you to love
We go together hand in glove.
And now I want you to know
The time has come for you to go
In your arms was still delight,
Quiet as a street at night;
And thoughts of you, I do remember,
Were green leaves in a darkened chamber,
Were dark clouds in a moonless sky.
Woman wants monogamy
Man delights in novelty.
Love is a woman's moon and sun;
Man has other forms of fun.
Woman lives but in her lord;
Count to ten and man is bored.
With this the gist and sum of it,
What earthly good can come of it?
So many things
in this life to feel sorry for
Almost too many things
to give back, to keep track
So...."Sorry I was so long
in returning your knife dear,
It took quite a while
to get it out of my back"
Congrats on your divorce
Over religious differences, wasn't it?
He thought he was God,
And you thought he was a Shit.
But he did bring you religion
And he did it very well
For everyday of your married life
Did you not experience Hell?

A Woman's Perfect Breakfast
You're sitting at the breakfast table.....
Your son's picture is on the box of Wheaties.
Your daughter is on the cover of Fortune.
Your boyfriend is on the cover of Playgirl.
Your husband is on the back of the milk carton.
My wife and I have the secret to making a marriage last: Two times a week, we go to a nice restaurant, a little wine, good food and companionship. She goes Tuesdays, I go Fridays. We also sleep in separate beds. Hers is in Florida and mine is in New York.
Some reasons for how it all started!
One year, I decided to buy my mother-in-law a cemetery plot as a Christmas gift...
The next year, I didn't buy her a gift.
When she asked me why, I replied,
"Well, you still haven't used the gift I bought you last year!"
And that's how the fight started....
My wife and I were watching Who Wants To Be A Millionaire
while we were in bed.
I turned to her and said, 'Do you want to have Sex?'
'No,' she answered. I then said, 'Is that your final answer?'
She didn't even look at me this time, simply saying, 'Yes..'
So I said, "Then I'd like to phone a friend."
And that's when the fight started...
Saturday morning I got up early, quietly dressed, made my lunch, and slipped quietly into the garage. I hooked up the boat up to the van, and proceeded to back out into a torrential downpour. The wind was blowing 50 mph, so I pulled back into the garage, turned on the radio, and discovered that the weather would be bad all day.
I went back into the house, quietly undressed, and slipped back into bed..
I cuddled up to my wife's back, now with a different anticipation, and whispered,
"The weather out there is terrible."
My loving wife of 5 years replied, "And, can you believe my stupid husband is out fishing in that?"
And that's how the fight started...
Little things mean a lot and big oak trees from little acorns grow.!!
Keep a loving mind in what you say and do!!
