Lasting Impressions

Relieved to find you gone

I relish the space you’ve left

I wander around, plumping out indents your body left behind

Quiet echoes through the house

Bouncing off the boulders of residual angerhurt, weighting the air

And defensive arguments play at high volume on a loop in my head

Maybe someday I will breathe deeply again

And I will hear what my own heart has to say

Inspired by The Daily Post Daily Word Prompt: relieved
