Poem -

14 YEARS...

He said...
I don't love you
So i pondered this fact
He said...
I don't need you
My surprise was his snack

He said....
I am leaving
Now, this gave me some pause
As I watched him remove
All his clothes 
From the drawers

He said...
I'm not sorry
You deserve all you get
You're a cold hearted bitch
14 years not well spent!

He said....
I've a new love
And she gives me more
So I tried for some tears
As he walked out the door

But I found I was dry
No
I just couldn't cry
So I followed him out
And said
Good luck you trout

Here are your slippers
And please don't come back
And whatever you do
Do not take the cat

And I searched for some sadness
To mark this event
But I found myself thinking
14 years!
Not well spent

And my lover was waiting
I had places to be
And isn't it lovely
To be finally
Free.

Oh wow!  That ending changed the whole tone of where I thought this was going...lol  It seems it was long overdue for him to go after all those miserable 14 years, and she already had her foot out the door for a new life and love...lol....Good for her!  Great build up to the end.  I enjoyed this.  Thanks for sharing.  xo ;)
