Poems about Divorce

Divorce affects more than just a couple. It affects their children too, and sometimes quite deeply. Even peaceful divorces can leave children and teenagers with emotional scars, like a sense of insecurity and abandonment. Teens especially need to feel love and guidance from both of their parents during their difficult adolescent years. Instead, they might begin to feel that their parents care only about their own happiness and don't really love them. These feelings are normal and difficult to work through. Teens dealing with the divorce of their parents should express their feelings and seek comfort from a trusted friend or family member.

    It happened 6 months ago
    Though it seems like yesterday
    I remember it clearly
    It was a cold autumn day

    Then left through the door
    3 bags and a suitcase was all you ..........

    Daddy says he loves me but he doesn't really mean it
    Mommy says she cares but I'm not dumb enough to believe it
    They both just want the money that comes with the child
    Don't you want me?

    Daddy ..........

    The alcohol. The fighting. It was hard to take seeing them like this.
    The late nights. The tears. Me waiting for all of this to end.
    I didn't want to hear it, but I knew it was coming.

    It's hard to explain how you make me feel
    It's all just so unreal
    I like to pretend as if nothing is wrong
    So I just play along
    I don't understand why you don't tell me the truth
    Don't you ..........

    I walk down this lane.
    Full of pain,
    waiting for a brighter light.
    It seems unreasonable.
    It doesn't feel right.
    Waiting for her to come home.

    Why did it have to be me
    This isn't how it should be

    I saw her ..........

    He broke me when I was eleven years old
    I knew no worse pain
    I know the truths of the lies he told
    I nearly went insane

    He moved out and lived with her
    Where he remains to this day
    I miss the ..........

    One day, the worst in my life
    The two that once loved me so,
    Ripped my world apart with some few words
    That I really wish I had not heard
    But that night changed my life
    Like the way day turns to ..........
