And there are people you’re never going to revisit ever;
And if C is really K, and K is really there,
The emptiness inside you now does remind you there’s nothing here.
A woman who imposed her will to such melodramatic extent
Is not the unflappable possessor of wisdoms and love you hunt.
She attracted you once; and attracted you twice; and
Led you to lose over a decade of your life;
But now all that’s left is how you are reminded – full tell! –
That you are well and recovered and sane and right
Precisely because now you never will see her again;
Nor yearn to be in sight. And there is nothing as easy
To take this decision as this decision is easy to take:
For you actually feel you have escaped the clutches cruel
Of a woman who hurt you and beat you mentally outright, and abused
Of all the kindliness you showed and did freely offer.
Where there’s T and K working together is a place you will
Never return: and if these two people work in cahoots
With C and R, then none of the four need darken your door.
And if it’s true, do let me know: swiftly and roughly
And toughly and hard. For people who are capable of so much pain
Are better never revisited – nor beloved nor belived nor bethrived
