Divorce: the Broken Song.

By Monica C. Voskamp

We move together.

We flow, we sway

We lean, we bend

And then something begins

To give way.

Only so much

And only so little

Can 2 souls take

Before they bend too much

Before they break too much.

Piece by piece

Song by song

Fragmented over time

They fall apart

And no longer move

Like the dance they once

Knew so well.

Once they could

Bend with the wind

Once they could

Recover so they wouldn’t

Snap and break.

But somewhere along the way

Something began to dissipate

And that beautiful unity dance

Became undone.

The music has stopped

The dance is paused

Broken feet can’t move

Broken hearts can’t sing

Without love,

They fall apart.

With more lies

With more hurt

Added a little more each day

The cost becomes too much.

And slowly they both bend

Sadly they both break

And their beautiful song

No longer plays.

Always hope. Always believe. Always love. ❤
