Casualty of War

Casualty of war

Words you would say

When you called me

That cold winter day

Tears started to roll

Asking what did I do

Making you so mad

The end to lose you

I’m angry

Even at myself

Not worthy

Of you or anyone else

Divorce not in my vocab

Not ever to me

What was the lesson

You wanted me to see

I racked my brain

Trying to look back

Where did I miss the bullets

This viscous attack

You weren’t even home

How would I begin

To learn to live

Over again

Then it hit me

Not to be left behind

What you where saying

The future was mine

You’re mean and cruel

Things your head

Get over you

Isn’t that what you said

Didn’t like what I saw

Or know you anymore

I will go on but

Not being a casualty of your war

3 thoughts on “Divorce is Like a War – and There Are Casualties

  1. Divorce, provided that it is uncontested, does not need to be a war. It will be a painful process, but provided that both parties can keep their emotions in check, divorce does not need to do as much damage as you might think.

    1. Jay,

      I was able to obtain a very quick and painless divorce from my first husband, but only because there were no children involved. When there are children involved, it is almost always a painful experience, even if it is not war.
