“Time for a Break”

 

She saw him

as he made

his way

towards her

and was surprised

at the lack

of having any

kind of feelings

at all for

him

she thought it

would have

been harder

over coming her

strong feelings

of hate

that she once

had for him

during that

first time

he approached

her

after she made

the much needed

break

that she knew

she had to

make

to protect

her inner self,

she was

dreading

getting through

that awkward

small talk

associated with

that first

meeting

but instead

she felt

nothing

when he passed

through her

personal space

she felt

nothing at all

even a total

stranger

would have

invoked

more of a

presence

before her

than he did

as he sulked  

by her

reaffirming

to herself

that she had

made

the right

choice,

a smooth

transition

no big scene

drawn out

around a lot

of

unnecessary

drama

instead

she walked

right

through him

proving to

herself

she was finally

free

for the first

time

in years,

his over bearing

high maintenance

shadow

wasn’t hanging

over her

sucking away

all her life’s

energy

draining her

very soul

with his

unsolicited

comments

and curt

remarks,

there is a

lightness

to her step

now

that

heavy weight

of his yoke

has been lifted

off of her

had she known

of this euphoria

state

she would

transcend to

from cutting

him out

of all her life’s

pictures

she would have

pulled out her

scissors  

years ago,

her smile

keeps growing

with each step

he takes

farther

away from

her

her life’s

biggest problem

making its way

down the road,

she saw him

again

a couple of

months later

in a very

common encounter

accidentally

bumping shoulders

as they passed

on the street

and as she

recognized

his unshaven

unkept face

she began to

laugh

causing him to

scurry off

without a

word

and in her

lightened

euphoria state

she started

skipping

down the

street,

as the little

girl lost

to her

returned to

her heart…
