The Day You Left

Poem By Ashley somethingorother

The day you left,
was the day that I changed.
What i got was a black pit,
a life of happiness, exchanged.

The day you left,
I got hard, dark, and cold.
I felt my happiness ended,
my life started to unfold

The day you left,
I was so very young.
My heart was banged, bruised,
pulled apart and flung.


The day you left,
I was completely devastated.
I felt forgotten, unloved,
and the world was what I hated.

The day you left,
I was but the age of six.
I was at that young, tender age,
when I thought, this god couldn't fix.

But then, again i saw you,
and nothing had changed.
I got back all my happiness,
and the black pit? Re-exchanged.

Daddy, I love you,
and it's been eight long years.
Yeah, the divorce hurt me,
but I've broken through my tears.


THIS POEM IS ABOUT THE, LONG, HARD JOURNEY I UNDERTOOK AT THE AGE OF 6 THROUGH THE AGE OF 8 ABOUT THE DIVORCE OF MY MOTHER, TERRY, AND MY FATHER, KEN. I LOVE YOU DADDY.

gunshot is what the parent meet.

one by one they start to fall.

I am walking down a pathway,
maddened by the fight.
That may mother and I had,
late the other night.
