Titanic

Every month
we sank a little deeper
when I raised the overdraft;
I ignored the elephant
in the room and
papered over the cracks.
I used all the air
in the diving bell
and not just money
tore us apart;
the elephant has moved in permanently
leaving no room for me
in your heart.

    What a beautiful collection of words. You have a true gift!

    • Unfortunately I found these words when I lost the love of my life in my divorce.

      If you open the dictionary and look up the word “Stupid” you will see a picture of me.

      Thanks for the words. Keep posting.

      Dave.
