Living With Divorce

Published: May 2008

The ramifications of divorce never end
The hurt and loneliness never bend
We try and move on each day and night
We pursue our dreams alone each day with all of our might
The family routines are no longer here
We anesthetize the feeling with vodka and beer
The financial obligations just keep on
The hate at the ex is nearly gone
The disappointment still remains
The kids: their wants, the needs, their gains
Life as I know it will never be the same
Some say it gets better, others pronounce the pain
Birthdays come and birthdays go
Getting older and trying to be happy amidst all the woe
A smile here, a smile there
Trying so hard to hide my despair
Camp for the kids, college after that
Feeling every day like a financial doormat
Thursday through Monday every other week, add another day is all I get
More vodka and beer trying to forget
The tucking in every night
The homework I hated and making sure it's right
I miss those days
In all the ways
I only wish the feelings will go away
The numbness I want to feel each and every day
I'm tired of not enjoying my life
Maybe this is what was supposed to be without a wife
Tomorrow's another day, and I will still be here
Another vodka or another beer.
