Despite all the ways
the man she'd once loved hurt her,
she wept for him.
Stepping back from the scene,
she took a long look at her own mistakes,
and shed tears of regret.
Forgiving not just him, but also herself,
was the only way out of this suffering.
And now it is time
to pick up the pen,
and turn a new page.
The withdrawal symptoms have ceased,
and she is finally clean of her addiction
to the man who never really saw her
for the main character she was destined to be.
