Ticket

After years of holding everything in
She finally found the courage
to hand him the ticket
to her much needed freedom
Freedom to not respond to that call
Or to leave a note
Or a message
To make arrangements
To call & check in
To keep up that front
Or act like she gives a damn

To no longer share space
But to gain her own space
To have no expectations
Nor obligations
But to concentrate
And meditate
And re-aquaint
And to not be attached to
that descriptive tag
