|Well packed and full of meaning. I hope it is just a poem and not a part of your life. This scene is so common. Your approach is unique.

|Wow. There's no mistaking the message in this piece! What I love about this poem is the strong voice, empowered yet definitely hurt. This is the type of person who does move on to "survive" without the cheater. The strength behind this perspective shines! Well done. Love and Hugs.

|If he forgets his suitcase after that, I'm sure it would be on purpose. What a way to end the irreconcilable differences. I bet he will never forget the way that ended. Very strong words.

|This knocks me and rocks me, Barbara. It is searing in its intensity and depth of felt emotion. Very well done with the repetition of such a powerful and meaningful image. I can feel this to my inner core. Such pain is almost unbearable. I applaud you for being able to write of such enormous inner upheaval. This grabs hold of the reader and is unrelenting. Thank you for such an honest and upfront offering. You always tackle issues head on. The integrity of your work is unflinching. Bless you, Kate xx|

|...and make sure you leave your keys on the way out even though the locks will be changed just in case you have another set.
Very nice poem. People never think that even just one wrong can destroy years of love and memories.

|Oh Boy! This is really powerful. Good on you! I take off my hat to women who can say I can't take anymore and send theman packing. I am a man who is against emotional, verbal and physical abuse against women and children, sometimes the damage that is inflicted even with emotional abuse becomes irreversible when it goes on for a long time...the woman loses herself dignity and becomes an empty shell, women are the best among God's creation, I can't see my life without my mom and the woman I love, so I believe that men should appreciate that. I know I do. If he forgets the suitcase throw the dang thing outside.|

|Seems I have said those exact words once and it sure felt good when that suitcase was no longer around, well said, filled with much emotion....
Be always safe,

|The title of this poem tells a lot. It hurts to read of the dismemberment of what had once been a happy family. This poem tells all too well the heartbreak that was wrought by a careless act.|

|I agree with Brittany this would make a great country song, that is exactly what this reminded me of, not a bad thing though, because I love country music

|Oh sweet Barbara, I certainly hope you throw away all baggage that you don't need. When packing, be sure to include some honey so that everything will be bitter sweet!
Amazing poetry, my dear woman, just amazing.
I have packed and left (five years now) after a 32 year marriage, and I have to say, I am having the best years of my life!!!!
To life after marriage!
Peace, love, and light,
