AN EMOTIONAL NUCLEAR EXPLOSION


By Charles Robert Lindholm

She set off

an emotional

nuclear explosion

when she said,

“I want a divorce”

 

I was blinded by

a burning truth

searing my soul

 

the shock wave

of her words

wounded my heart

 

the devastation

was complete

it destroyed

our home

our family

and our dreams

of a future

 

It ended – us

with an irrevocable

unilateral decision

that left memories

broken and scattered about

in my mind

 

but the world kept on turning

the hurting slowly subsided

as Time’s healing helped end the pain

and Hope has brought

a new and better future

than I could ever

have imagined

 

and like the Spring

follows Winter

Love has returned

to my heart
