How much do I love thee

How much do I love thee
Let me tabulate all the ways

I bought you a new Mercedes
	With gold plated tire rims
I bought you a humongous diamond ring
	The size fit for all Royals and King
I bought you a store of the finest lingerie
	Secrets still held at the door by decree
I bought you a garden of roses so red
	My love was surely in bloom, or so they all said
I bought you a ticket to heavens pearly gates
	So that in paradise you’d have not to even wait
I bought you your very own private Lear jet
	To see the world through champagne eyes
My love was a vault and you emptied it dry
	My heart has now learned to never cry

How much do you love me?
Your lawyer seems to know

You claimed mental duress
	Suffering under such stress
The Mercedes was the wrong color so I am told	
	I should have known, pink, not gold
The diamond ring was too heavy to wear
	Your back injuries caused you painful despair
The lingerie didn’t cover you just right
	So medical ailments kept you up many a nights
The roses in bloom where not the right flower
	Your allergies they caused, thus making you sour
The ticket to heaven you plain out refused
	Said it was one way, and that just wouldn’t do!
You had no issues riding my Lear jet 
	You rode the pilot as well, a mile high kinda bet
My love you tossed into the bin out in back
	The divorce lawyer smiles at me, saying she sure is great in the sack 

The moral of the Story is this!
If you are sitting at the table, and
You see a few beetles scurrying about
Maybe even whistling a tune or two
Listen carefully to what they say

The Depth In Your Imperfections

Condemned to be my truth inside,
To you I've given all my pride,
When our celestial stars collide,
I'll drain out all the tears I cried.
For you alone have broken me,
And threw out all my good debris.

The depth in your imperfections,
You destroyed all my perceptions,
Connected a disconnection,
Never wanting your affection,
May the shadows keep you quiet,
Wishing your secrets are private.

You have stolen my innocence,
Forgetting all my relevance,
I prayed for my deliverance,
From you a dark bad influence,
You damaged my mortality,
And blocked your informality.

I will admit I'm stronger now,
You're abuse I will not allow,
My psyche you will never plow,
My body clean and wonder how,
Condemned to be my truth inside,
No longer will I have to hide.

Our relationship is an ongoing trial
I’m growing tired of the endless accusations
Every time our eyes meet, it’s an appeal
If this is true love, where is the justice?

Let’s make this about love – I’ve had enough
True love has neither a judge nor jury
The heart commits – eternal devotion – for life
We’ve lost that trust – this is an injury

What we hide from each other is evidence
It’s far more dynamic – no need for low blows
When we deprive our love – in place of divorce
It’s a sin far greater than breaking any laws

The Good the Bad and the Ugly Divorce

Let Him Go (Limerick)

Our mom told us how she chose her beau,
With an “eeny, meeny, miny, moe!”
Of course it didn’t last,
With a choice so half-assed!
But at least it taught the fool to grow!

Child Support (Haiku)

Parental disputes
Had placed us in the middle
Of their divorce wars

Divorce (Couplet)

He left her to fend for us alone, blasé with his remiss,
She chose to break this conjugal bond without marital bliss.

Great joy together...

Hearts now torn by love and hate...

Solution: Divorce.

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"!

The Ugliness Of Divorce

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!

Cupid's Arrow

                                     All my exes were pros of the game,
                                  Spending years at perfecting their aim.
                                          They thought it was funny
                                             To take all my money
                                  When the judges said I was to blame!

Divorce Party

As two drift apart
   Apathy is the death knell
     .....sorrowful ending.

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?

May Forever be Our Happy Ending

We had something
and whatever it was
is sustaining me
through this lonely moment
of mourning.

You touched me
And you spoke
You loved me
And you wrote
You sang to me a sweet song
and that memory is helping me
keep on.

I don't want you to die
I don't want you to cry
You are my answer to that question "Why?"
What kind of romantic story
Could we to our children tell
if we wound up in paradise together
        if we actually both survived this hell.

I realize I loved you tonight.
Everything that went wrong
went wrong
But today I understand
You were something I did right.

Because if we had never touched
If you had never loved me that much
I wouldn't be able to survive tonight
A night so tough.

That memory of that moment
is keeping my sheets warm.
It is keeping me from tossing and turning
I can whether this storm.

This is why Jehovah created me
I am your Eve
Please don't leave...
I need for our story to survive.
I need us to remain the once upon a time.
Please let my loving prayer
help you survive...
Please stay alive...

Divorce Club

Love seems endlessly
Then stalactites stalagmites 
Divorce comes for sure

She walk down the isle smiling in white dress
In the courthouse in black dress, what a mess
Lovers dancing on the sand
Divorce and money in hand
Got her money's worth, who laughs last laughs best

The guy thinks he can outsmart the girl
The girl knows after divorce she owns his world

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

divorce..these days

the passage of rights
have turned to wrongs

the depth of love
have turned to hate

funny how 
everything changes
and stays the same....

the love and the hate
merely transfers

Love is a Killer

Pain, Pain, Pain 
Carly Button

Sit up in his bed and breaks the alarm
blood flows to the brain and he tries to stay calm
but the pain doesn't go away that quick in the morning
even on the inside the rain begins pouring 

and the lights are off but they're on in the mind
Of the man who devoted two years to a lie
On his face he feels every kiss, knows every line
Bruises on a heart that has grown smaller than mine

Eyes that dance with memories hard to forget
Black spot on the white page of love and regret
No matter how hard he tries, they stay on his mind
Images of a happiness it took them years to find

Every kiss they stole under the midnight sun
Every time he looked at her and said “you’re the one”
Spun a dagger of pain that tore at his chest
Like a demon that had no reason to rest

She would be happier with him, he tried to think
He tossed away her picture and poured another drink
Who was he kidding, there was no life without her
His life was a disease, and there was only one cure

So he stepped on the chair with the rope on his neck
And wrote a letter to the girl that he could never forget
With hands behind his back and a soul done crushing
He said goodbye to a world that gave him absolutely nothing.

Divorce Isn't Always the Best Choice

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!” By Jim Pemberton

Love's Sexual Divorce

With every man I kiss or fu...I'm writing you love's divorce papers

Your love inside of me
Has become like a festering boil
Or an inflamed, infected wound
The injury must be pierced
The infection must be cut out
The puss and bacteria must drain out of the sore
So, with every touch or kiss
Or mere presence of another man
Is like trying to bring the 
Infection, pimple to a head
If I kiss enough men
Or someone long enough
I will kill the love that I have for you
Like a knife
Playing hairy kauri
I will take the knife and slit my wrists
I will weep, I will mourn
I will die inside
As I let my love for you die
And just when I feel weakest
When I feel like all the blood
Has drained from my weary body
I will feel one last heartbeat
Like the blood from a vampire
I will feel myself dead, yet alive
And feel myself be reborn
I will survive
I will go on
And I will vow never to be
Burned or used this way again
I will refuse to be
A dog unto its vomit
And I will avoid
That which brought the boil, pimple, wound
And I will move on!

My Divorce

I loved him and he loved me,
so I guess it just wasn't meant to be.
I mean we broke up and I thought we were Okay,
I didn't even think of the possibility, that our love would die one day.

But the thing is I still love him, so I guess he's the one, who no longer loves me,
and it hurts cause i thought we were so happy,
maybe I - maybe I just thought that; maybe it wasn't true,
but what do you expect when your husband never fails to tell you he loves you.

He gave no sign that he wasn't happy, absolutely none,
maybe the only reason he stayed was because of our son,
But now he's going and if it was because of our child;
why now? I mean he's only five.
Maybe he had a mistress and he's decided he loves her
but what about his family? would he seriously not choose us over his lover?
Maybe I'm over reacting, maybe it has nothing to do with me,
but if I'm not the reason what else could it be? 

I have so many questions but he won't answer any,
why? this divorce thing is really scary.
Okay I have agreed the relationship is over,
but the least he could do is give me some closure.

Running Straight to Divorce Court


a final lap---
the race ends before
crossing the finish line


They finally took the marriage leap!
They said the vows they hoped to keep!
But while in bed
She acted dead!
He claimed he used his best techniques!


They ran in circles on frozen ground
But when the marriage ends, winners crowned.......

Saving a Marriage

It's a curiosity to me
how we are so alike,
yet, so different in this manner.
I could never survive in your union,
my soul craves a more intimate bond.

You want things to change, and
need a starting point.
The definition of Marriage
is one you both should explore--
I think you'll find you have very
different definitions.

"Do years count?" 
Only if they were good ones;
Only if you can look back and say
they made you a stronger couple.

"How about loyalty and fidelity?"
They count, but it is more than body;
It's the day to day of putting his needs
before yours of trying to make him happy,
of trying to be happy with him. Have you
done this faithfully?

"Why is it all about sex to him?"
Perhaps it more about cleaving,
feeling connected. Can you honestly say
you've felt that in a while? 
Is sex not that to you?
Touch keeps you connected,
and denying him has left a void.
You are of words;
He is of the physical.
Try talking while holding his hand,
then both of you are connected.
It's a small start.

"What about raising our children?"
An important task, no doubt, 
and it draws you closer if you do it as a team,
but it can also push you apart.
It can be a reason to talk
at each other
instead of to each other.
Another task to be done in a busy day,
running in opposite directions to meet their "needs."
But were they really their's,
or were they a convenient excuse to
head in a different direction--
the ultimate avoidance.

I listen to you talk about wanting to go to counseling,
but I wonder if you are ready to make the changes.
It's not all him;
It's not all you;
It's the both of you, wanting to change together.
It's finding the friend you married, and
committing to making it work.

Twenty-five years is a long time 
to wallpaper over the issues
that are stacked in layers.
Now it is time for the hard work
of tearing it all off, and resurfacing.
Are you up to remodeling your home?

Divorce: A Bitter Course

Where does he go and what can he do, this wife he married is not the same
words of love have been replaced by abusive words, bent on giving him shame
the sun has turned into rain; you’re trapped, with nowhere to avoid getting wet
now caught in the web of her discontent, and holding your head down with regret

You look toward compromise, hoping to work things out and make it right
only to encounter resistance, she wants nothing less than you out of her sight
as words fall on deaf ears reality sets in, you are full of contrition and remorse
no it gets worse, she's on the warpath and solely focused on threatening divorce

Looking at your young children, with tears in their eyes, what they must now see
a crushed father, withdrawn from the world, only wanting to take them and flee
while wisdom falters and silence overcomes, still dumbstruck on what you can do
remembering a love that once was, but no longer, realizing your marriage is through

Surviving the pains and turmoil of divorce, a challenge sought by many before
only too often leading some to those bitter waters, transfixed on evening the score
but children become the true victims suffering the most, unperceived by those in pain
only in adulthood will those scars surface, on future relationships they leave their stain

Trying to mitigate emotional scars in any divorce requires sheltering children from your hurt
their emotional well-being is of paramount importance, their exposure to anger you must avert
while difficult to accept, divorce can sometimes be for the better, perhaps you will yet come to see
your door to emotional stability was never locked, search deep within for only there lies its key

Inside of me want to cry, scream and shout
My thoughts are all in a scramble so I decided to write it out.
How could I be so blinded by love?
Look what you have done
But I can’t hate you for changing me into the women I’ve become.
You played your game one me cheating on women to women,
You tried to cover up your lies by saying we’re only human.
You had your mistress, the mother of your daughter play along like a clown.
I needed to put a stop to this so I put my foot down.
Instead of holding her like you’re held me 
She should have stopped messing with married men and start being someone’s mommy.
And as for you, I hope you won’t be too blind to see
What other girls are doing what you have done to me….

Love to Hate

A Lover's fist

Glitters red with blood

Friends become Enemies

“Hold on, wait until this game ends”
He said as he he sat at the edge of his seat with his elbows on knees
Hands on his face, just below his eyes so he barely see
All she wanted was a nice dinner with some friends
They talked bad about him but she loves him, she pretends. 
He agrees to parties with ease 
But once it gets closer, excuses are his expertise. 
She was over it. It was time to make amends. 
She packed her bags and stood in front of the door 
She yelled at him and told him that she’s leaving 
He couldn’t hear her, all he cared about was the final score 
She knew he wouldn't do any grieving 
She closed the door.

Some days I feel lonely, Some days I just wanna leave. Some days are harmful. I hate this world I live in. The bully’s that call me “Horse Teeth” “Ugly”. Those days were harmful. Where family is cruel. Where you have to be Perfect for everyone. The dad that abuse your mom and you and your brother, and where he only cares for himself. The mom that loves you for who you are and sometimes acts like a teen and go out. The little brother that is just too cute but a pain sometimes. The little sister that is spoiled & mean to you. And say that she hates you when you try to be a big sister, she sweet sometimes. The second older brother that is just like your dad sometimes and only nice when he wants to be. Then there is you. You’re crazy in every way. There is nothing Perfect about you. But there are days when you wanna leave. I know cause this is

Death's Hand

when dad left us,
each night praying for the love it would take
to fix my parents marriage.
i would pray for the kindness
i desperately needed to face my siblings
and my mom.
now i know my words fell on deaf ears
and god is nothing but a fancy name for nothing.
cried when i didn't know what love really was.
i still cry over the idea of love. true love.
when my family fell victem to death's DOMINO effect
i knew real love was buried six feet deep.
this is why i cannot cry over you.
i should be sorry, but i'm not.
i should be scared, but i'm not.
nothing can hurt me quite like love.
it's not found in tulip fields or bookshelves.
when he died, my aunt couldn't stop trembling.
papa told her she couldn't shake forever,
but it has been six years now.
if i squint hard enough i can see him
sitting next to her at family dinners.
hand on a quivering knee, as if she sees him too.
love is a six year shiver that never stops.
it is not something you wish for.
love is love is love is love is pain.
love is nothing but death's hand on your shoulder.

Rise and Fall of a First Love

At first there's a glance, and the passionate need for the first kiss,
The intense flutter in the pit of your stomach when you both first meet.
The sensitive feeling of their naked body next to yours feels like bliss,
And then yearning for more as your bodies fill with erotic heat.

They are the first thing you think of when you open your eyes each morning, 
They are the first person you want to talk to when you're excited, afraid, happy or sad.
When a crowded room is filled with hundreds of people, but they're the only person you see and the only voice you hear talking, 
When everything they do is fantastic, and they never ever try to make you mad. 

The years go by and there's the hard times and the good, 
The sex is still amazing, but doesn't happen as often as it should.
The main conversations you have relate to houses, kids, bills and food, 
Planning a night out together is hard work, and you'd rather be with your mates if you could. 

Then something changes, you can sense it but nothing is mentioned, 
The staying out late, the excuses and the guilty looks you constantly share.
You talk a little less, shout a little more and there's an empty feeling inside, 
The thoughts that you are in a nightmare when you realise you no longer care. 

The realisation that you don't recognise the person who was once your hero, 
The boy you loved with all your heart and were inseparable with, has now grown into a stranger.
The looks of anger and feelings of hate when you argue over nothing take its toll, 
That moment you know you don't love this person anymore and the marriage is in extreme danger. 

When the ending of a marriage is harder than you can ever imagine, 
The best friends and lovers you once were is now like a distant dream.
Your heart hardens a little and the beat changes into a bitter symphony,
Lying on the floor in floods of tears, wondering where it went wrong and wanting to scream! 

They say you never get over your first love, you may always compare it to the rest. 
Life shouldn't be written like a book, it should be filled with happiness. 
Although the breakdown of relationships can diminish your heart and damage your trust with all that's said and done.
But you must remember that life isn't over until death arrives, so we must believe that the best is yet to come....
