Divorce is a heavy piano chord that goes plunk. It happens in an instant, and suddenly the room has changed. The air is weighed down by permanent words. Once, you were there - and now, you are here. It is surreal. In the coming days, you remember the note that was played, but you still must remind yourself over and over again. “Did I hear that? Did I truly hear that?”
i am so sorry for your loss, Victoria. and, congratulations on coming home to yourself, also.
Thank you for writing this ❤️
This was really beautiful, and relatable <3
The rhythm also reminds me of Consolations by David Whyte.
This is excellent (as a piece of literature. Horrible as an experience) and will definitely keep this in my back pocket to share with any clients or others going through the trials and tribulations of divorce.
