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
ย 
Who will be my advocate
in this frazzled, ugly mess
Serenity long gone
just hurt and anger remain
and you couldnโ€™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.
