Rid of You

Yesterday, I felt defeated
Burdened with a man who cheated
And a lot of other woes
Some of which may yet undo me
Life is gloomy
Bill collectors sue me
Still and all, there’s big improvement
I got rid of you
At the worst, I’m
No worse than last week
And for the first time
I think I’ll pull through
No more late nights
How I used to hate nights
Wondering were they blond and perfect
Were they married, too
No more. No more shouting
No more doubting
All you say
When people ask me
I say I’m okay
I tell them, look, I stopped the skid
Damn smartest thing I ever did
When I got rid of you
