Moving On - Poem by Dilantha Gunawardana

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
