The Last Night Of A Drunk Mans Wife

By Elizabeth kaczocha

You've done it.

You've finally done it.

You have broken me beyond repair.

I finally had to start thinking of me.

You went to far, and I don't want to die.

I had to remove you from my life.

I have to let go of my fear of being alone.

I've done what I must to preserve myself.

You may never understand, but this is over.

I have to look out for me now.

Goodbye.
