Dawning

His spiteful words hung unanswered in the air as they stood in the hallway,

While she kept completely silent, unmoving, staring vacantly into space

Because she knew how much it unnerved him.

She told herself not to tear up and showed no emotion;

Instead she gazed at the wall just to his left, as if it meant much more to her than he did.

He had made her feel like she needed him

But she came to realise that she didn’t need the insults he threw at her to vent his frustration

Neither did she need the feeling of guilt that pervaded her days

Souring her enjoyment of time spent with her friends.

In fact she now knew that she felt better without him,

That she was more alive on her own.
