Divorce by Email

My fingers dance with such energy across the keyboard.
The romance deep within me is sharp as a sword;
Cutting into your heart with only one single intent,
to rip you apart and cause you so much torment!

I want you to feel pain with each sentence and paragraph.
An emotional bloodstain, and me with the last laugh.
You reap what you sow, and this time you're the fool.
You thought I didn't know, but I smelled your cesspool!

So carefully read these words, no more credit cards and mink coats.
Pay attention to the verbs, no more diamonds to go around your throat!
The papers have been filed, no more lavish lifestyle for you.
I'm still wearing a smile despite the sh#t you put me through!

So by the time you get this, your bags will be packed and out the door.
I hate that your pretty lips I use to kiss, were lips of a whore!
I hope this email finds you in an emotional hell with such force;
That it makes it hard to exhale, because I want a divorce!!!

*Note: I wrote this for my ex wife, who happens to be my youngest daughter Lilly's

    Oh dear Jimmy I do hope that you're over with this! I am also divorced but don't have any hostile feelings against my former wife on contrary I think I still love her, but that is history! Great lines you have penned here! All the best!...Gert
