The Meeting

Six months had passed

Six months I had been free

To live my life

To be me

A phonecall out of the blue

Sent me reeling once again

Why was he calling?

Yet he never spoke my name

He said he needed to see me

Before he made his plans

And so it was arranged

But would I be safe with this man?

I chose the carpark, and kept the door open

And listened to his words

“No one really likes you, it’s me they want to know”

“I might come back, but you need to change your ways”

I stepped out of his car, never looked back

and proudly walked away.

Six months I had been free

From the betrayals and put downs

Now I clearly saw the future

And knew I would make it on my own.
