the end of a relationship
Now it’s been said,
That angry word.
Both of us wish we hadn’t said it,
But both of us know the other heard it
Now, we fall apart
A shattered glass
Fifteen years of a life together,
Years of a love to last forever
Now, you lock the door,
I’ll turn in my keys,
And be the one who doesn’t love you,
You can be the one who doesn’t love me

|Wow, I cannot read this poem without wonder what goes wrong in a long term relationship. Seems to me that one side or the other stops talking or listening.
If I had to leave my wife of 44 years, I might as well crawl into a pine box and disintegrate.

|A painful and sad poem you have written here.Take care.I'll be looking forward to reading more of your poetry in the near future
|Reviewed by Cynthia Buhain-Baello
Painful and precise like a scalpel. This is a well written poem and the style helps to "cut deep" into the heart. Sometimes a relationship (like cancer) needs surgical cutting to usher in a new refreshing one, or to make a "healing process" restore the heart.

|How devastatingly sad when a loving relationship comes apart. Yet you write it still with love in your heart....
Be always safe,
|Reviewed by Linda Hill
Heartfelt and sad write. The end of a relationship is always heartbreaking, sometimes for the best, sometimes not. If not, I hope you two find your way back to each other!
