Tammy Lynn Michaels’ Beautiful Poem About Melissa Etheridge Filing For Divorce

On Friday Melissa Etheridge filed a Petition for Dissolution of Domestic Partnership to legally end her relationship with Tammy Lynn Michaels, seeking joint custody of their three-year-old twins. Melissa “blindsided” Tammy last year by ending the relationship, and news finally broke in April they were done. Not helping things: Michaels’ tendency to take to her blog to write poetry about her now ex-partner. Today is no different:

blindsiding

i am wondering if it’s an art

gentle waves
no noise for awhile
or maybe gentle voices

and

SMACK!!!!!!!!!!!!
FILE FOR DIVORCE!!!!!!
even though we both promised
agreed
handshook
pinkyswore

no filing until after tour
in the fall

her broken promises
told to me by
headlines

i’m raising the kids
doing what i can
second set of yours

could you stop blind sighting me?

unless it’s another art form you’re working on?
