Before I married Ash, I was married to another woman. We were each in abusive households growing up, and we could only afford to move out of those homes if we lived with someone else, so we decided to get married. Of course, that didn’t last long, and soon we were divorced and I had to move back into my abuser’s house. Divorce was inspired by these events.
An odd thought:
When they find my body
Will they still call it a “suicide”
When I pull the trigger
After she has already taken my life?
It is the only poetry of mine that doesn’t rhyme or have wordflow. I’ve spent hours upon hours reading my poetry aloud and getting the rhythm down to a perfect science for every syllable. Divorce was just a thought I had that I decided to record.
