The 1990’s were an explosive time in my life, I became a wife and mother for the first time. My first husband and I had a rocky relationship, full of love, lust, loss and betrayal. We went from being good friends to bitter enemies in a a blink of an eye. Trying to be a good wife and mother I tried to make the relationship work until I couldn’t take anymore. These poems are a peek into that time of my life. The best part of that relationship were the three beautiful children that marriage produced.
