You stopped three years ago

As suddenly and unaccountably

As you started

When I was still in school

You traumatized me

I hated you as much as I hated

The transformation that

You brought in my body

Even before my mind

Could ready itself

Not only you changed

How others looked at me

Even how I looked at the world

Month on month

I waited with trepidation

If you were delayed

It drove me crazy

If you came on time

It made me curse

but for a while

a long while in fact

we became friends

when I could use you as an excuse

we have traveled a long road together

you have defined all my moments

as a woman

you threw a tantrum

before you finally quit

I don’t miss you


The woman that you made me

The one I no longer am
