Moving On

I let go of you

Every miserly fragment of longing

Every stubborn memory 

Every lingering morsel of pain

I let go of you every day, every hour, every second

Until I found myself letting go

To all my heart owned 

Until every node, every cell, every artery 

Was cleansed of your residue

As my exorcism of you

Awoke in me a perennial tranquility

As if the wind had vacated her night vigil

Where deep within my extant soul

Was a mass extinction of nostalgia

As I exhaled you out of my system

And inhaled in a beautiful strain

Of an empowering solitude
