A Monsters Defeat
I needed. I begged. I pleaded.
I asked. I tried.
You lied. I wondered, why?
I knew. I accepted. I grew.
I cried. I hoped. I learned.
I ran. I breathed. I burned.
I had faith in my own abilities.
You left. I thought, OK, bye.
I finally saw what I couldn’t see.
I opened. I got in. I believed, I could start again.
I buckled. I adjusted.
I became accustomed
to an empty passenger seat.
I packed; I drove. My things of old, stacked in the trunk.
In the rearview mirror, you shrunk.
And I watched you disappear into the horizon.
I came. I saw. I conquered.
I defeated, my monsters.
