Sexual Addictions Are Destroying Our Families

Sexual Addictions Are Destroying Our Families!
Many families are being destroyed by sexual addictions!
As they bring into their homes unneeded afflictions!

There are affairs of adultery of all different kinds…
As many allow sin’s pollution to destroy their mind!

Many have no comprehension or fail to see…
The filth of garbage being promoted on t.v.!

Rather than seeking God for his blood’s protection.
Husbands and wives look to others for affection.

God looks and sees the wounded and broken heart.
And before you know it, another family falls apart!

Too much of this is happening in churches today.
Will these families just come together and pray?

It’s time to come together as a family and be strong!
Let’s get rid of the things in our life that don’t belong!

Let’s seek the purity and holiness of God above.
And be strengthened by his majestic love!

Let’s seek God’s protection over our families too!
And speak kind words to another, like; “I LOVE YOU!”

May the love of Christ come and bind us as ONE!
And touch every father, mother, daughter and son!

Lord Jesus, we all need you so much!  This very hour!
We can’t make it alone!  Without your power!

Please Jesus, restore what the enemy has taken!
I’ve never seen your children left or forsaken!

You are the only one that our family has needed!
Only by your love, will our family be completed!

-Divorce Club-

~~ Divorce  Club~~


Haiku   * divorce trip *
---------
broken promises
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:-)
 
by;p.d.

**OKAY I'M NOT GOOD AT EXAMPLES**

Cheaper To Keep Her (Divorce Club)

(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"!

a divorce was the best thing for me then

(Haiku)
kitten left for cat
i got the knife in my back
no she can't come back

(limerick)
when we were married she did'nt cook or clean
fact is: she was only good for one thing
when she left i cried and cried
maybe once or twice thought of suicide
many years latter it was realized
my divorce was really a reward in disguise

(couplet)
i cannot say i hate you, but i will not be your friend
it was very distasteful, the way you treated me in the end

Night Time Divorce Benefits

(Haiku)

empty spot on bed. . . 
with TV remote in hand
she sprawls across it

(Limerick)

He used to steal every top sheet
and the blankets that covered her feet.
But now that he’s gone,
all the covers stay on.
Even sleeping, she now finds life sweet!

(Couplet)

Divorce might leave a gal lonely and poor.
At least, she won’t be aroused by a snore.

The Divorce Club

with rings we were wed
until death do us depart – 
the love died too soon

There once was a romantic wedding
We mistook love for what was in the bedding
But outside the sheets
We were incompletes
So the marriage license we are now shredding

We join many others in the divorce club membership fold
Mistakes so many repeat when the love story is said and told

'Divorce Society'

~Haiku~

your love flew away 
like a migrating bird
and never came back...

~Limerick~

Your lack of love pushed me to the floor
I couldn’t take it anymore
I signed on the dotted line
You were no longer mine
Why don’t you just hit the door?

~Couplet~

We entered into a partnership
Six months down the line you decided to jump ship

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,....no winners crowned.......

North Pole Divorce Club

Snow everywhere
once joined, now melting apart
causing much distress.

Santa got divorced and also got fixed
too many little Santa's running around because of his tricks
  Santa liked the women.
  Too many little guys were swimmin'  ;)
Now we all know how Santa got his kicks!

Santa slept around and ate too much grubb
His wife finding out made him join the North Pole Divorce Club!

Pre-divorce Lesson Number 3,697

.



Being kept penniless was way too much! 
Gonna fix my ex's car...
hell, he couldn't do it! 
Couldn't find rusted parts...

needle-nose pliers, Phillips, 
ratchet, spit, gum...jack.

Hmmmm...reroute spark plugs
thru the injector...
ignition nutrition...ho hum.
Throw out carbuerator...
manifold's too round...

computer don't need this
many circuits...
turning signals' gotta go...
new fuses color the ground blissfully! 

Don't you agree, now that you see, 
he did the same to me, to me...
I kind of didn't like it.

Oh, and chewing gum shoved
deep inside
that key thingy place...
no spiteful binge! 

Just angelic revenge...

BEING MY OWN DIVORCE LAWYER

This is how it is
To be torn between two options
And not know I am facing them.
How can I?

They say I’m too young.

It’s hard
To interpret the look in those eyes,
To hear those unspoken thoughts.
Yet I feel I know
Even if they are keeping it from me.
Hurried meetings,
Tears and promises,
Yet no sign of
What I hope they will say.

They say I’m too young.

If they wonder why I’m not
As cheerful, as bright as I am usually,
Do they know
That they are responsible?
How can I understand
Things they never show,
Things they never talk of?
And still those two options,
Those two ways
And being implored to choose,
When I don’t know what I’m choosing
When I don’t know why I’m choosing
When I don’t know where it’ll lead me…
I still don’t know I’m facing them,
Facing those two choices.

This is how it is,
Because they say I’m too young.

Spare Nails and a Hammer

Your mother always yelled at your father to fix the nail protruding from the kitchen floor.
“It’s going to hurt someone someday,” she would bicker,
but your father hid his face behind his newspaper as she spoke. 

The nail remained sticking up from the ground,
but you taught yourself how to walk around it
just like you taught yourself when to exit and enter the room.
Your mother’s heavy voice was like a fire alarm
telling you to evacuate the scene and leave your father in the flames,
but there was nowhere for anyone to go---
he forgot to build a fire escape. 

She tried to leave hints for him around the house:
A hammer on his pillow,
spare nails in his pockets,
but naturally his fingers picked around them
like playing a guitar.
She had given him all the notes,
but he preferred to play his own tune.

Eventually she had given up on shouting,
for she was tired of hearing only her echo.
Each couldn’t feel the other.
He could not hear her words that dropped like stones,
she could not hear his weightless language of silence,
and you could not speak in a house enclosed with two deaf parents. 

One day you came home and saw that your mother’s side of the bed was made nicely
like it hadn’t been slept in for days.
It was cold and stiff, preserved like a shrine.
That same day you went into the kitchen to reach for the phone,
but tripped over the nail emerging from the floor
and went clattering down beside it.

Ode to a Failed Marriage

 
What’s in a house if not a home?
hollowed without a soul
barren devoid of affections
worthless and insincere
painted badly in monochrome.

The husband fucking probably a ripe whore;
younger than the one he married
fresher with tender skin
vigorous and more passionate
something for him to explore.

The carefree wife gallivanting daily
frittering her hours at window shopping
squandering all that he owns
wasting valuable time worthlessly  
faking truth living like a happy lady.

She cannot wait for his demise, his estate is huge
not like his manhood
petite without enthusiasm,
diminutive which one can hardly notice
more like a hysterical subterfuge.

Both live their own ways hardly meeting at all
like ships that pass in the night
overlooking all the problems facing them
snubbing all the moral bind of marriage
expecting for something unexpected to befall.

What’s in a house if not a home?
dilapidated
corroding
wasting away
until it becomes loam.

Marred marriages (Divorce)

A broken heart is a broken home… a broken society
We owe each other a sincere love that will last long
Why should happy homes indulge in this impropriety?

I cry for the blessed brides that left the base they belong
Just because they can’t cope with stress, sweats and strains
I weep for those good grooms that weren’t steady and strong

Oh, how are some mighty marriages… plundered by pains?
A once happy home turns lifeless, loveless…a deadly desert
They couldn’t hold-on and together harvest their golden grains.

Why on earth do we have to break these lovely, happy hearts!
When you have once vowed, in sun and rain to be friend forever?
Why should you break that colorful cord, you are now far… apart

What would become of the seeds sown and do not train together?
Thanks to those continued to care… broken, but they do not bother!

BEFORE I LEAVE

Before I leave
Capture this moment
Like the winds on the beach
Let it waft with chilling breeze
On the shores of your conscious
Stirring a foam of nostalgia
Ebbing back on the sea of this moment
 
Before I leave
Wrap me in your arms
As a slime trail
May the touch be imprinted on your skin
Light of this moment, glitter with silvery touch
Ages even after we part ways
 
Before I leave
Let me stay a little longer
As a ripe fruit
The love shared at the moment
Gather scintillating colors
Arousing fragrance
Even after it fall on the ground of loneliness
The birds may soar around it with admiration

Are You Looking For A Divorce Try JESUS

Are You Looking for A Divorce?  Try Jesus!

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!

Temporary Freedom Like Splashed Water

Anchors drawn, current pulls, wind swells the belly of 
sails. Calmer seas exist where sun sets with moon lapped.

Mate seperated fleeting with Soul, impaling waves
gaining temporary freedom like splashed water.

Alone in depths with only reflection of the firmament,
clouds resemble old skies. Sun rays withdraw kisses

from waves, birds burst through grey cotton weeping 
furiously.  Baritone bolts of light cuts the sky, while

thunder stampede it's acreage in pugnacious fashion. 
Arguing heavens awaken the slumbering sea. Smaller

waves impregnate larger ones becoming tidal. A 
provocative image of nature in the nude, gyrating. 

Mate, did not belong in the bed with elemental
foreplay. The erection of H2O capsized Peeping Tom,

who would've survived as a single vessel; Soulmate.

The Best Thing

In search of what comes next, 
I sat perplexed,
reading a text from my ex; 
not knowing what to expect
after the separation had wrecked
my heart, now dark
lonely walks in the park
had sparked thoughts of
darting away like a lark;
a sharp pain my head,
felt dead; staring into
the sky overhead.  Asked
God, why in the hell has
she fled? Now she has
the other man in her bed.
Was blessed, but feeling a 
little depressed, a mess,
also a little bit stressed.
A test? Killing me deeply 
inside; I died, tried to
commit suicide, then cried,
the moment I opened my eyes
surprised, that I was still alive;
survived the loneliest time of
my life that night; I started to
write poetry; that’s right
the best thing that’s happened to me.
I fight to savor the good memories.

Cursed abscond

Disaffection            Contemptible 
Inaction 
Always disappointing 
 A life filled with abjection 

A bitterness following 
A black clouded – sadness – infliction 
Running in retrogress           run from her apathy 
False heartedness                               filled with antipathy 

Praying for death 
 in my godless ministry 

Suffering so ruthless 
Without any sympathy 
Without you I'm useless 

Opprobrious eyes           demand I abscond 
For she's a shell 
that is now loveless 
Now selfish 
 now dies 
Her hand is now gone 
In my hands now I cry.

Grounds for divorce by M.A.Meddings

If only I had seen the love I had for you, 
And I perhaps had even tried to love you, 
There would not have been the wounds that hurt us now, 
Had I  only seen the way you loved me. 

Had it been so clear your drift away from me, 
And I had just remotely tried to stop you, 
There would not have been the man that you love now, 
Had  I only been the man you wanted. 

If only I had seen the monster I'd become, 
Had  I even  heard you say ' I'm leaving', 
There would not have been the pain that we have now, 
Had I only seen the change in me. 

When  finally I saw the love you had for him, 
How I would have turned back  the  years, 
There would not be, the torture I have now, 
If only you could love me like you did. 

How I wished  this could end, the way that we came in, 
a  magic that we found so long ago, 
You would have no need to leave me as you did, 
And I would never cry to see you go. 

You could not believe, the way a heart could bleed, 
If only you had felt how deep the wounds, 
You would not have laughed at me the way you did, 
And you would even softly soothe the scars 

And finally I’ve seen the devil at four o clock, 
but you will never hear the tears I cried, 
If only you had seen the scars across my eyes, 
but you could never know the way I died.

The end.

Half Is Much Better Than Nothing

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)
