It was amazing to read your post, especially the part about being "gone by sundown"!! I mentioned my five ex, and when I finally got the courage to end the relationship after five long years of his emotional and verbal abuse, I packed my bags and left the state within three weeks. I left him and my home and friends of seven years and moved 1200 miles away just because our relationship ended. Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face. I pretty much did everything possible WRONG through that process (got involved in a rebound relationship pretty much immediately after breaking up with the ex, with a completely toxic four who is seven years younger than me! He ripped my heart to shreds! Never trust a poet!) and had so many regrets. Most especially leaving the place I truly loved and felt most home. Ug. It still hurts to think about and it will be four years since I left there this summer.
Oh well, many wonderful things have happened since! Not the least of which was hitting my own personal rock-bottom and finally getting into therapy (after toxic four dumped me on my 30th birthday after I'd flown him out to spend the millenium New Year's with me, did I mention that poets are treacherous?) which was one of the greatest things to ever happen to me in my life!!
Sorry, I'm really rambling now.
