Melissa Etheridge Tammy Split Separate

Tammy Lynn Michaels, who was left blindsided and broke when Melissa Etheridge filed for divorce, has taken to her blog once again to discuss her heartbreak and financial woes in free verse.

Melissa's lawyer claims that the singer is paying her ex's bills, but Tammy's latest poem tells a story of insolvency, medical trauma and impending homelessness:

ulcers to gallbladder to pancreas to liver and then...?

a dillar
a dollar
a trick or treat
hollar
need some help
need some honesty
need some real
call 'er
no answer

gallbladder
pancreas
liver
ulcers
MRIs
ultrasounds
gotta get it done
on pennies now?
somethings going on

gotta get a job
with barf bag in hand?
and leave my twins with who?
and with what babysitting money?

a dillar
a dollar
a trick or treat
hollar

this too shall pass
cuz i believe in miracles
and
miracles look like rainbows.

oh. and we have to be out of our rental in 45 days.
man, i love a challenge.
