goodbye

you 
blow back into
our lives
in a drunken squall
indiscriminately 
hurting
all in your path with
words
and fists
your newfound hatred 
sets me free
you have broken
the vows
you have spit on
the promises
you have destroyed
the love
i am no longer
your doormat
i will no longer feel
guilty
for your
sins
