Save It Or Leave It

Oh Love- how it sweeps in and grabs two hearts
It makes two souls never want to part
The excitement and wonder that feels the spirit
Negates any cynicism, it just won't hear it
There's courting, commitment, even marriage
Time brings a bundle in a baby carriage
Circumstances get harder and money gets tight
It often feels that nothing goes right
Words are spoken and feelings get sore
It just isn't the way it was before
The fighting gets frequent-- part of everyday life
He shuts down and she's a discontented wife
They both hurl around the word divorce
And after the battles, there's no remorse
The mind rules the ego and shuts down the heart
Husband and wife spend more time apart
Baby's in the middle; it's a cryin' shame
Mommy and Daddy are pointing the blame
Somthing's got to give, what will it be?
Could love be gone so completely?
Save it or leave it are the only two choices
Listen to your heart and no other voices.

    Yes it is a pity that this becomes real all the time. People change as time passes but there are never good reasons for fights. Very well written Rhyme, Kimberly! Keep your pen flowing...Gert

    You have pictured so common a happening truthfully, Kimberly. I sympathise with the girls that face this situation. Many homes are broken, many hearts are crushed. Unfulfilled desires are the demons behind this. I quote a Quatrain from my book Rubai'yat of Josh Malihabadi -A Drop & the Ocean: O wise! Be happy even if affliction pressed/ Be not in search of comfort obsessed/ The flame of desire of non-existent burns you/ Enjoy, enjoy the morsel possessed. Thanks for your comments on my poem. - Mo

    I love this! This is my favorite new poem! Maybe its because I can relate so well as a divorced mom, but still the way you brought the words together and conveyed such an incredible real message is totally amazing! Thank you for your own comment on my poetry! I look forward to reading more of yours!

    YOu are a wise lady. I think I listen with my mind and not my heart. Otherwise, I'd have been divorced 30 years ago. I think if people waited it out, they might see things can get better! Thanks for your welcome comments. Andrea
