In a new poem, Kanye “Ye” West expresses his feelings over his divorce from Kim Kardashian, equating the experience to “teeth being ripped with pliers.”
In an Instagram post on Friday, March 4, Ye shared a piece of poetry that depicts how divorce feels in his eyes.
“Divorce feels like full blown Covid / Divorce feels like your doctor don’t know s–t,” his post read. “Divorce feels like your walking on glass / Divorce feels like you’re running through a glass wall / Divorce feels like you’re being bullied in a class hall / Divorce feels like you’re getting beat up in the mall.”
The message continued with further analogies such as, “Divorce feels like heavy breathing / Divorce feels like suffocating.”
“Divorce feels like your teeth being pulled with pliers / Divorce feels like slower than paint and dryer / Divorce feels like nails in your hand,” the Donda artist posted, adding that going through this kind of breakup can make a person feel like “You are not you anymore / You’re what left of you.”
The release of Ye’s poem on Instagram comes two days after Kim was legally declared single. During a virtual court hearing on March 2, a judge granted Kim’s request to not only change her marital status, but to return to her maiden name, Kardashian.
A source told NgCrush exclusively on the day of her court hearing that the application to become legally single is assisting her in moving forward with her life.
According to a source, “Kim is experiencing a big sense of relief now that she has been deemed legally single.” “She’s overjoyed, and she believes she’s one step closer to restoring her independence and moving on with her life.”
Kim made some changes to her social media accounts after the motion was granted, eliminating “West” from her Twitter and Instagram profiles on March 3.
Kim applied to be proclaimed legally unmarried for the first time in December. In February, Ye submitted an objection to her request, requesting that a hearing be set.
Days later, Kim resubmitted her plea, adding that Ye was causing her emotional pain due to supposed social media posts about their breakup.
As far as how Ye now feels about Kim’s newly declared marital status, his lawyer Samantha Spector said in a statement to E! News that the rapper’s concerns are strictly “procedural.”
As Kim and Ye’s divorce proceedings continue, a hearing has been scheduled for Aug. 5.
