Broken Promises - Poem by Katinka Havermans

My head is full
full of questions
And actually I would
want to defy you
To explain to me
why you think
that this should be like this

I just want peace
peace in my head
and in my body
It does not stop
What once was
Between you and me
has over for so long

I see the pain
pain of our oldest son
in his eyes
though it seems quite normal
I feel the same so long now
and you, you don´t notice a thing
while just caused it

And somewhere deep
deep in my head
I know why
And yet you did promise
But since you've been sick
you are another you
and I don´t know you anymore

Is not it crazy
crazy and stupid
once there was love
I wonder why
divorced people if not for
their children´s sake
don´t better interact with each other
