Before The Divorce Read This!
AUTHOR'S NOTE The definition of divorce in its broadest sense is merely a separation or disunion. I admit to being a novice attempting to share. I must also confess that I was struggling with and for my own sanity. The emotional, physical and finally spiritual traumas that occurred during my separations (and there have been many, the last being the most meaningful), have forced me to see myself. Fortunately or not, I have been able to recognize the mirrored images reflected at me, the ones that I've projected onto the screens of the people I love. This has been purely reflexive. It was not my intention to smother, brow-beat, convince, persuade or judge, but it is instinctive. My first divorce was at nine years old. I stopped talking to my first friend because I had an attitude. A year later I found out that my friend understood and had moved on. I would like to acknowledge that there are many aspects of a relationship and/or marriage that have not been touched upon in this work, the reason being that I have written only about that which I have experienced. I have too much respect for you to invent stories or waste your time and money. I will ask for your assistance in regards to this: if and only if any one of these poems (and this is what I call them) helps you or seems true then please share it with someone - especially with any children talking about marriage. Thank you and may God Bless you. On the lighter side - This is a true story. The names and places have been eliminated to protect the guilty. With the lyric nature of titles including Active Love, Planning To Get Married (./?), All Friends Aren't Real, Try Forgiving, What Color Is Love?, Did You Buy, Or Did You Marry, and Letting Go: this book and these poems were written to help the reader deal with and view the troubling times with a sense of hope. The Suggested Reading List was added to encourage and direct you to other useful resources.
