the end of a relationship


 

NOW

by

James Boyle


 


 


 

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

Now.

Too many sad endings amongst relationships today- know they were in past, but not as many - if people could only talk it out more, and relate more, and realize the otherside isn't always the best, than maybe the world relationships would survive turmoil.

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.

Hello James,

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,
Karen

James,
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!

Many blessings,
~Linda
