She didn’t think that he would leave,
though in a way it is a relief to find
that she feels better without him bringing her down.
Being alone forces her to reach deep down
inside herself to ask why she didn’t leave
him first. After all, there is something more important than him that she needs to find.
Her own strength is a priceless find.
Being alone and afraid down
inside that dark place makes her stronger, and she clutches her treasure as she climbs out to leave.
If we want to leave behind fear and find a way to rise above it, we must first reach down.
