Divorce This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
It downsizes problems
Except for mine
They say every name under the sun
For they aren’t rags
Raggedy Ann never got it this bad
It was all fine
Until
He boarded up the house and left
She cried and she cried
Their love was great
But
Their hate is worse
This isn’t fantasy
It’s what she’s felt.
Every other weekend
What a rush.
He loves us so.
But how do I know?
The red in my hair,
It’s a part of you.

I like the line: "Their hate is worse." Also the last four lines. For those who have felt the effects of divorce, they will relate to this piece.

"the red in my hair, it's a part of you." Exactly what I once said to my father. How absolutely strange.
