Healing Again

I must wash my hands
of this affair
for you’ve made it clear
that your belief in love
lies buried somewhere
far beneath your words

Your words of evermore
no longer ring within my ears
for you are gone
and turned the truth of love
into a fleeting attitude of mood

The raging rivers of despair
are quick receding
while anger quickly comes
and goes again these days
for you are gone
yet life and love go on
even without you

The silence seems serene
instead of deafening
I hear a high-pitched note
of my deliverance
ringing, singing soft and sweet
of healing again...
