And After Love?


I feel empty,
sad but not distressed,
alone but not lonely,
broken hearted perhaps,
but somehow cleaner for it.
Mostly I feel free.

Why did I stay so long
when there was only
pain for both of us?
Why did you?

Love based on dependency
is not love, it is fear.
Do I even know what love is?
The myth of movies,
does love even exist?

The day you left
I cried for 24 hours
because I cared so much.
I cried the next 24 hours
because I realized that what I
really felt was relief!
