After the Love Has Gone

After the Love Has Gone

After the love has gone
and the hierarchy shifts
There is always a winner
and of course, a loser
and the taking back of gifts
 
Who will be my advocate
in this frazzled, ugly mess
Serenity long gone
just hurt and anger remain
and you couldn’t care less

    The taking back of gifts really spoke to me in this poem, Christine it recalled the final days of my marriage. Really well written.

      Thank you, it seems to be a common heartache. I’m sorry you went through that too. 😥

      Yes…there is always one who feels more powerful as a relationship/marriage ends. 😢
