I don't even think about you now.
  There's nothing of you left with me now.
I've sold the car that you once sat in,
Moved out of the city we used to live in,
Thrown out the underwear I wore to seduce you,
Lost the CDs that we used to listen to.
There's nothing of you left with me now.

I don't even think about you now
And the physical fights we had in that room
That felt like a prison, a dungeon, a tomb,
The feelings of lust that used to take over
The feelings of fear have gone, now it's over.
I don't even think about you now.

So get out of my dreams -
I've erased my regrets
From my past madness, it seems
That your threats were all empty
That your bite stopped at your bark.
You didn't come chasing, except on the web
From the computer you sat at, alone in the dark.
I don't even think about you now.

This really propells the reader along. The middle stanza is exceptionally strong and really ties the whole piece together. I like the line: "That your bite stopped at your bark." Really nice stuff

I liked how you expressed this. Very little remorse but a lot of relief. You speak for everyone who was mistreated and moved on. Well done!
