Short Poems

Broken Promises
Our love was once strong and true
But now it’s shattered, no glue
Promises made, promises broken
Leaves my heart feeling awoken

Separate Worlds
Once held hands, now miles apart
Two separate worlds, one broken heart
Our love, a distant memory
Now no longer meant to be

The End of Us
The end of us, a painful truth
A love once held, now aloof
Wishes and dreams, faded away
Our love couldn’t make it through another day

Fading Wedding Ring
The wedding ring I once wore
Is now fading, forever more
The symbol of a love that died
Where once there was passion now hidden inside

Medium Poems

1. “Broken Home”

Our love was once a fire
Burning bright and wild
But now it’s just ashes
And we’re left feeling defiled

We tried to make it work
But we couldn’t mend the cracks
Pulled in different directions
We couldn’t find our way back

Now we live in separate spaces
Our home is torn in two
Our children caught in the middle
As we try to start anew

The pain of divorce is heavy
But it’s what we need to do
To find our own happiness
And maybe start anew

2. “Waves of Emotion”

Divorce is like the ocean
With waves that ebb and flow
One moment calm and peaceful
The next a raging undertow

The feelings come in waves
Of anger, love, and pain
And we’re left to ride them out
Again and again and again

We once were happy lovers
But now we’re just two strangers
Trying to find our way
Through the hurt and the danger

Our hearts may be broken
But our spirits carry on
We’ll learn to love again
And find where we belong.

Long Poems

The Breaking Point

The wedding day was pure perfection,
A fairytale come true,
Two hearts joined in true affection,
Both thought their love was true.

But as time wore on, cracks appeared,
The fairy tale began to fade,
Their love they thought had persevered,
Fell into darkness, and doubt was laid.

They tried to hold on, but it was futile,
The trust and love had dwindled away,
The arguments continued until they were brutal,
And in the end, they had nothing left to say.

They turned their backs and walked away,
With shattered hearts and tear-filled eyes,
Their love story had come to an end that day,
And they were left to face a life of goodbyes.

It wasn’t just the love they lost,
But the family that was shattered,
The plans and dreams that bore a cost,
And their children left feeling battered.

But life moves on, and they must too,
The pain and bitterness must subside,
And though it may be hard to do,
They must learn to thrive, and not just survive.

So here’s to new beginnings and new chapters,
A chance to live and learn,
Life’s too fleeting to remain a captive,
And too beautiful just to yearn.

The Aftermath of Divorce

It was the end of a chapter
A love that once stood so strong
The tears and heartache were factors
In the decision to move on

The house that once was a home
Became a place filled with strife
As two people who once shared it
Embarked on separate lives

The hurt and pain were overwhelming
As reality set in
The once perfect family picture
Would never be the same again

Days turned into weeks
And weeks turned into months
As two people tried to navigate
The aftermath of this jump

The children were caught in the middle
Torn between loyalty and love
As they tried to grasp the changes
And adjust to a new way of living

The blame was thrown back and forth
As anger took center stage
And each person tried to hold on
To the reasons for love they once claimed

But time has a way of healing
And wounds do eventually mend
As each person slowly discovers
A new way to live again

The memories of the past
Will always remain
But they no longer hold the power
To cause in either person pain

For in the end, they both realize
That sometimes love isn’t enough
And it takes a strong person
To see this and move on with love

So now they each walk their own paths
With new lessons learned and new friends
And the beauty of life is rediscovered
And the journey begins again.
