Standing Before The Chasm Of Divorce - Poem by Uriah Hamilton

You haven’t made up your mind:
If you leave right now,
You’ve thrown away the time
We’ve spent together.

Are you prepared to say
We never loved each other?
Are you prepared to live without love?

I can’t forget you,
I can’t say everything was untrue,
And I can no longer find the man
Who existed before I met you.

    Thank god I did not have to go through that, but I think I would have preferred it, with the pain I now have to live with Uriah! Why do people let it get that bad, especially men! why do they have to put women through hell just to realise they love us? is a questions I doubt I will get an answer too. Great poem, perfect in every way. I did here someone describe divorce like grief once and I am sure it would be. Love your work, Tai (Report)Reply
