That day she asked him to leave;

For once and for all;

Perked up the courage, squared her shoulders,

Puffed up her chest and did it.

Didn’t think, didn’t tell and probably didn’t mean,

But she did anyhow.

She did.

How long- she asked her lingering doubt;

How long can this go on?

Being sorry, being sad,

Being missed, being loved

And back to being sorry again.

How long?

Unsaid words, uncomprehended thoughts,

Unfelt feelings- all hung in the air.

The thick viscous, invisible mist;

It was all there- all encompassed in one word-


That was the day she saw freedom.

That was the day she tasted loss at the tip of her tongue.

That was the day she said ‘enough’.

It was that fateful day she grew into something more.

It was that day she finally became HER
