Melissa Etheridge, Tammy Lynn Michaels

Lester Cohen/

Tammy Lynn Michaels is not keeping quiet about her soon-to-be ex wife's decision to formally end their nine-year partnership. 

Taking to her blog to blast Melissa Etheridge in poetic prose, the self-proclaimed "Hollywood Farm Girl" said she was "blindsided" by the timing of the dissolution of their domestic partnership. 

"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," Michaels wrote Saturday. "Her broken promises told to me by headlines….could you stop blind sighting me?/ Have a good concert." 

Etheridge filed to dissolve the couple's domestic partnership Friday, citing irreconcilable differences. She also requested that Michaels be given no financial support. 

That was a particular blow to Michaels who's claimed to have financial troubles since the split, saying she has had to scrape together money to make ends meet. 

"I know she doesn't want to give me money. trust. i'm borrowing cash left and right from people to get through this summer, and feed my kids, with a stomach full of ulcers, thank you. no stress here. :-)", the 35-year-old L Word actress wrote.
