Hardest Year

They say the first year is the hardest

   with all its fighting, adjusting

   division of responsibilities

   syncing of schedules

   financial coalition

   sex life shift or beginning

   demons released from baggage

      unsnapped on the bed

But it is unparalleled with the last year

   should it come to that

Division of funds, families,

   friends, time with the kids

Deciding what is fair

   in a time of unfairness

Denial, depression

   signing the divorce decree

Giving back the house keys

   off of your ring
