Divorce

By , Surrey, Canada
Such a simple thing







































dad takes off the bling





































he moves out








































the only time he doesn’t shout


































mom doesn’t need to explain
































because I feel no pain




































I’ve dreamt of this





































even more than my first kiss


































because this is supposed to be bliss

































but they never tell you





































so you don’t have a clue



































and if your dad is like mine


































you’ll be wasting a lot of time































shouting







































arguing










































and never getting anywhere


































thinking he doesn’t care
































because he’s never there



































for you










































so you cry










































you ask why?








































Why is he looking for someone?

































So you make a pun




































trying to giggle amid the tears































so he can’t see your fears




































he goes on the internet


































making a bet




































because he’s desperate



































what he finds








































now binds







































putting you both on the line
































he thinks it’s all fine




































and now he wants you to accept it



































yet all you want to do is quit


































but you want to protect


































while receiving some respect


































so you count to ten




































hoping he isn’t like other men



































you walk away






































praying for a better day
