as on too many previous occasions
but this time I won't come begging for your return
newfound freedom and I
have broken the old chains
been elsewhere exploring other possibilities.
Like a light that once illuminated my happier days
I will unmourning see you go out
your self dominating assurance kicked aside
by the boot of my determination
while I draw on new strengths
must be tools needed
to smash down your claustrophobic walls
and detach my stupidity from the future.
