but being together solved most of it,
in fact, solved all of it

past the marching armies
and the horses that walk the streets outside
past the memories of the pain and defeat and unhappiness
Linda, you brought it to me,
when you take it away
do it slowly and easily
make it as if i were dying in my sleep instead of in
my life, amen
There's a belief that when a divorce goes down you take the years of the marriage and half it.
That is suppose to be when the marriage began to break down.
So if you were married twenty years and then divorced, the marriage actually began to fall apart ten years before.
It's because divorce is so painful, many people tend to put it off until it really is the only option
The last part of the poem brought that to mind.
