Free at last

My heart pounds rhythmically
As I push myself to go faster
I look back to where I left
Wondering if I should return
No, Don't go back..
Please... Don't go back
I beg myself inwardly

The memories hit me
Just like he did
Over, and over, and over
The pain still seems to linger
Even if its been a day or two
I couldn't take it anymore

I begged myself for years
To leave his tyrannous house
Though I never had the courage
Each day I contemplated
Waiting for the right moment
And this was it

Relief fills my soul
Knowing I never have to relive
Those treacherous nights
When I couldn't fight back
To put it simply,
I am free.
Free at last.
