Part 2 of this story. You can read Part 1 here!

It’s been ages  since you left (don’t keep track anymore) and I feel free, I feel like this autonomy, this freedom from you has given me perspective on things.

“Kate” you used to say,

“You’re nothing without me”

“Stick with me and I’ll make you rich”

But, I realise now, men like you prey on women with low self-esteem, women who don’t love themselves, women like me…Well, who I was when I was with you.

“There’s something different about you, Kate” a friend told me yesterday.

“Yes, I got rid of all the poison in my life”


Did this for the Daily Post prompt word Autonomy.
