Two Years

two years ago
i never thought i would be here
there I was
celebrating something wonderful
i thought,
this is where we begin
here I am now,
finding party poppers in the bin
she must have been celebrating
her leaving

i sat on the kitchen floor
it felt so humiliating 
at least she cleared up the mess
but in that insensitive way
they could not show more respect
two years on
i breathe the air of my new life
now she has gone
