~ Surviving Divorce ~

Survive separation or divorce when an important relationship is breaking up

...is there life after separation?
 
read on...

 

 

Deep wounding loss!
Great pain in my heart
My life is but dross
Since we had to part

 

My dreams are all gone
My hopes come to naught
I sit here alone
Depressed and distraught

 

I'm heavy as lead
No energy to function
Fit only for bed...
stalled at a junction

 

My whole world is gone...
possessions, position,
in-laws, joint friends,
blown to perdition

 

Defenceless, alone,
isolated, sad,
was there ever a time
When things were so bad?

 

I grieve at my fate
though it leaves me so tired
For activities I'm late,
distracted, miswired

 

Can't seem to take part,
enthusiasm gone...
so much broken heart
to dwell upon

 

It's all about change,
losses and growth,
extending my range,
casting off sloth

 

But security was there!
in my disintegrated past.
There were people to care...
relationships to last

 

And now I'm not sure...
It's all a new game!
World wobbling around
without reference frame

 

There only is me
and my meagre resources
Dubious options
and uncertain courses!

 

It needs all my strength
and presence of mind
to handle this crisis...
get out of this bind

 

But I'm crippled with grief,
too burdened with worry
to turn over new leaf,
in fresh pastures scurry

 

Not much of a chance!
Barely surviving!
Pricked by a lance
In need of reviving!

 

Positive thoughts
are fragile and rare
Negative thoughts
Bring me constant scare

 

And under them all
that great aching void...
The life that is gone!
The dreams now destroyed

 

An end to the tears?
Nowhere in sight!
They say it takes years
and I've run out of fight!

 

There's no going back
My bridges are burned!
No way off this rack
My love has been spurned!

 

Someone to blame?
That might help a bit,
but responsibility and choice
on my shoulders sit

 

I did what I had to
and it sure wasn't easy!
My nerves were on edge,
my stomach was queasy

 

It couldn't go on,
I had to get out...
orderly retreat
or panicky rout

 

Out of the frying pan
meant into the fire
As in "get burned"...
not just "perspire"

 

"Things must get worse
Before they get better!"
- I've followed this adage
to the nightmarish letter

 

How one survives?
That is the question!
The answer arrives...
 

By loving and caring for myself!
