~~ Divorce Club~~
Haiku * divorce trip *
eclipse of the sun and moon
dreams that fall like leafs.
Limerick * never settle*
Like a gun to my head of course
I married the end of a horse
love was never real,
kids no big deal.
Wow! I gain more money after divorce!
Couplet * forever vows *
I meant them words "for better or worse" during our holy matrimony
The better now has hit me, once the Court ordered alimony:-)
**OKAY I'M NOT GOOD AT EXAMPLES**
Two hearts became one
Now they follow different paths –
Divorce with remorse
He complained constantly of my cooking
Café reservations always booking
Said I drove him insane
But boy did he complain
When I left for someone better looking
The complaining has stopped, but the house is so quiet
So I pick up the phone, invite him for a riot

STILL NOT DEAD ( no kids allowed 2 read)
This morning I took my med.
taking more than my dose.
I am still here thrown in bed,
Lifeless and nobody knows.
I am still alive I am still not dead
I don't think I succeeded my overdose.
Should have cut my vain instead,
or stuck a whole ounce my nose.
To scared to put a gun to my head,
that would have been very gross.
Couldn't even stand it if I bled,
Stupid, me now I find a hose down my nose.
Still not dead,
Regret the day you propose.
The day I said "I DO" I dread
The feelings that came, I let nobody know.
Thinking of ways of dying instead,
holding my breath is all I show.
All this started on the day of our wed,
imagination took over making my mind blow.
Finding my self here still not dead,
Who said suicide is easier than a DIVORCE !!
=( Not a fact, just humor over my marriage! )=
(Haiku)- * Motive, infidelity messing with the Queen Bee's Honey*
Queen Bee sits on throne,
Bumble and drone bees as one
Sample flowers dew
(Limerick) - *Admission of guilt leads to compensation*
Indeed this is how the story unfolds,
Pete said, "It's a poor rat with only one hole"...
Love had taught a sad lesson;
Divorce court was now in session,
Judge rules favor, Pete's pockets full of holes...
(Couplet) - *Take vows seriously payback often belongs to Spouse - Queen Bee*
Love said, "Pete too late you've opened your peepers"....
"Man, you should know it was cheaper to please her"!

I do not know?
Mother of Pearl.
Sand slipped inside a shell.
Seagull's morning feast.
There once was a father who wanted time and space
There once was a woman who ran a race.
The children were grown.
Their pockets were blown.
So one retired and the other became an ace.
There's two sides to every story, personal answers within.
Judgment of each awaits God, or those who haven't ever sinned.
Poem for Divorce Club Contest by Destroyer Due 12/3/2010
Great joy together...
Hearts now torn by love and hate...
It all began with "For Better or Worse",
But the words afterward became very terse.
Divorce was the answer she decided upon
As with me she didn't want to go on...
The only other answer was to ride a hearse.
Two people in love end up in court and for a divorce sue,
It would never have happened...had they not said, "I Do"!

My parents taught me the Christian ways.
I was taught to obey what the Bible says.
I was proud of my parents! I really was!
And loved them so much… Just because!
They meant everything to me! I was proud!
Until one day... There appeared “a dark cloud.”
It was like a “darkness” hovered above.
Leaving their marriage empty of needed love!
Though they were together many years.
There were many cracks that soon appeared.
I say a once happy home soon destroyed.
Being with one another…. They no longer enjoyed!
How could this happen! I had wondered…
To see a happy marriage “totally plundered
As sin crept in... And allowed to prevail.
Very soon this marriage simply failed.
May this be a warning for me and you…
That our commitment remains faithful and true!
If your marriage is heading toward separation…
Please seek God for a healing and restoration!
If your planning to have a divorce..
Jesus’ love can put it on the right course!
He can replace the brokenness and hurt within..
And can put your lives back together AGAIN!
By Jim Pemberton
As two drift apart
Apathy is the death knell
You are cordially invited my friend
To a party celebrating the end
Of ten years of wedded bliss
(All the rest were hit or miss).
Please bring your own bottle if you attend.
So why do I not feel in control of my life
Now that I am no longer anyone's wife?

You're mad because I told your husband the truth.
You cheated on him and I showed him the proof.
Instead of being angry, you should be ashamed.
You cheated and you only have yourself to blame.
You tried to convince your hubby that my proof was misleading.
But he could see the truth and he started divorce proceedings.
Because you were unfaithful, the judge didn't give you squat.
The clothes on your back were the only things that you got.
Your good life is gone and that's something you regret.
You once drove a Porsche but now you drive a Chevette.
Because of your infidelity, you were tossed out into the street.
If you ever find another rich man, you'd better not cheat.
(This is a fictional poem)
Divorce Isn’t Always A Good Choice!
I met a person who’s been married for many years.
When he talked to me, he was in tears!
He was faced with the option of divorce!
And now, he feels his life is driven “off course.”
His wife said she’s through. She’s “all done.”
And doing things which seemed “fun.”
Beyond each day and the circumstance…
Does this marriage even “have a chance?”
Why do people seem happier when they’re apart?
Far too often, this ends up in a broken heart!
Too often, people “give up” on what they believe!
But it’s so many lies, is what they receive!
I spoke to this person, of God’s purpose and meaning!
Into God’s loving arms, is where he needs to be leaning!
When life changes, and marriage seems to have failed you…
Jesus is here! And wants to put his arms around you!
There’s hope and answers to all of your problems!
You’ll find the answer in God’s word! HE can solve them!
The best choice for you is to come and trust HIM!
Give Jesus your life! Come now and love HIM!
All he needs is for you to give him an invitation!
He’ll change you! And make you a new creation!
His love can do what no other power can ever do!
He’ll bring new meaning in the words;
“I LOVE YOU!”

Help me God for I need you by my side
The devil is out there but, she likes to hide,
I am angry and upset all in one
How do I get peace and some how make the devil be gone,
What did I do to deserve this 11 years of torment
Did I deserve all of this because it was in print,
When I married my love I never knew the anguish I would endure
To have a person whom would be so vendictive for sure,
It would be nice to have some sense of peace
Now that is all I can wish for to say the least,
I feel desperate to have a calm and peaceful living
So why is so hard for them to let go and be forgiving,
There is an answer I know that will help me
Only God can show this person how to set them free.

Departed, broken hearted
Independent now is me
Victorious in the court room
Or at least I hope to be
Regretting ever getting married
Could anyone else love me?
Ending of a marriage that was never meant to be
When a couple got a divorce, the wife was going to have to pay alimony.
She thought that she could get away with murder but that was baloney.
They had been married for twenty-seven years and had kids.
She was going to have to pay $50,000 per year because she earned more than her husband did.
She didn't want to lose half of her salary so murder was the direction in which she went.
But she didn't give the Police any credit, she didn't realize that they are very efficient.
The Police showed their efficiency when they arrested her, that was a painful lesson that she had to learn.
Half is much better than nothing and now she's behind bars and nothing is what this stupid woman earns.
(This is a true story)
I knew of a wife who felt like she was alone.
There were many nights she cried at her home.
She was in, what I’d call a difficult situation.
There really wasn’t a good explanation.
Her husband just kind of “gave up” on trying.
He didn’t find what he felt was “satisfying.”
She was concerned for her children too…
And wondered; “what am I supposed to do?”
It wasn’t too long she fell into the arms of another.
And neglected her duty as a Godly mother.
This family began to unravel and fall apart.
It has lead to many wounded hearts…
This happens with many Christian families...
As more become “frustrated” and unhappy!
Whatever problem we have... God can deliver us!
He can heal our families, because he loves us!
If divorce is the kind of action that you’ve found!
Won’t you trust Jesus, to change it all around?
Won’t you commit your ways and thoughts to him?
Won’t you fall in love with Jesus, and trust him?
There’s power in the blood! I know and believe it!
Won’t you take the time… And receive it?
Jesus is here! He can change the bitter ugliness!
By his glory, beauty and his righteousness!
Please dear Lord, bring healing to your children!
May your healing touch continue to build them!
None of us need to feel worn out and alone!
When Jesus can fill our hearts and home!

The hurt and pain has gone on way to long
Despite my efforts to hold on and stay strong
I find myself losing hope
I'm not quite sure just how to cope
I do what I can't to forget his name
By playing myself into some risky game
Use medication to make it through the day
Can't quite find the words to say
To the thoughts in my head that can't stay silent
To the anger in me that needs to be violent
I gave all I had till there was nothing left
He walks away free with a broken heart theft
I'm trying like crazy to erase his memories I keep
But the more I try the more the wounds dig deep
The foster child who put up a wall
Found a man to break it down
Only to find out he was her demise and fall
So I'm mad at him and myself for believing
That I could be so fooled by looks that were deceiving
From the reason I'm smiling
To my river of tears
He has no regret
He doesn't even care
I should have know he was not the one
When he wasn't moved by the death of his son
God help the cold heart that lies within
And rid him of his every sin
Broken, bruised, hurt, and tethered
Our vows will be forever shattered
Though nothing will ever heal his damage
I have hope for the heart held together with a bandage.
At time some men not change themselves,
They simply divorce or replace.
I know a person who will make up lies to get her way
But, she doesn't tell about her secrets due to judgement day,
This person knows it is wrong to falsify legal documents
But, in desperation they don't care because to them it makes sense,
They hide their dark secrets from the judge
Because if he finds out then they will have to let go of the grudge,
Their hate towards people who do them wrong
Continues in their soul that they have had in them all along,
The day will come when they will have to confess
That for the past few years they have become obsessed,
By still getting even with people they still hate
So they can never let go of their own eternal fate.

I say to you that you didn't steal my man
Even though it was my fault because I cheated on him with a mam,
I never was the best wife or mother that he wanted
So I have always made excuses for how sorry I was and now i am being haunted,
By the guilt I feel why I lost my great hubby
I wanted him and a woman to satisfy my needs to be lovey dovey,
I tell thank you for taking him from me
Deep inside it hurt so that is why I couldn't set him free,
That is why I sought vengence so he could feel my wrath
But, I still say; he is the one whom took the right path.

walking into my work is when you are
stepping onto dangerous territory
i have no time for second chances
i want a reliable partner
no lies, second life, or secrets
i want to be hopelessly in love
have a marriage full of love and adventure
no more nights reading between the lines
trying to figure you out
and why you're not home yet
