Impossible Love Poems

Love, Loss, Rebuilding, Recovery, Divorce, Dating, & Hoping for Love Again.

by John Oakley McElhenney

Book Image Not Available

In divorce we learn more about ourselves and our path to recovery than we'd ever thought possible. In pulling the experience out, word by word, a poet can occasionally give glimpses into the feelings and raw terror they are experiencing. Impossible Love Poems brings the journey from loss and depression all the way back to hopefulness and expressions of fully-ignited love.


John McElhenney has been writing about his divorce for over four years. In a popular blog, he has revealed things that most people would never allow to become public. He has stripped away the pretense and hiding that is part of surviving and recovering from divorce. In this book of poems from that period, Mr. McElhenney tears back the covers and lets his guard down. We walk along side the broken father as he struggles to find meaning in the days without his two children. We get to travel along side the hopeful poet in search of a new experience. The self-examination is deep and honest. We're getting a show that most people would not dare to make public. But we are richer for the experience. In these poems is the hope for rebirth after divorce. In this testament of the honest man, and the honest husband, we will see how things came apart and how the author reconstructs his life from a new base of understanding. Alone. You stand alone in divorce, but you can carry friends like John with you along the journey. His words inspire, they touch the sadness that still needs to be expressed, and they ultimately give hope. A triumphant story of love, Impossible Love Poems, makes the point that clearly they are possible. Here you hold proof in the resiliency of love and the human spirit.
