Now that you’re gone

Now that you’re gone from everywhere
And I no longer hear the winds roar
I can breathe in deeply, gently
But that gnawing feeling still grows
You see, I turned my caterpillars to butterflies
But their cocoons still litter the floor

Now that you’re gone from everywhere
I can be me in so many new ways
I can fall in love gently
Reinventing myself every day
And yet something lingers, beneath the surface
Something you firmly planted there

Now that you’re gone from everywhere
I pull away from the toxic lure
I become nothing and everything all at once
I conjure happiness out of thin air
You see, I choose to start afresh
But some memories still chain me here

Now that you’re gone from everywhere
And I can see the road ahead much clearer
I know what you imprinted upon me
All these marks will not just disappear
Now that you’re gone from everywhere
My body still feels you here
But through its aches and pains every single day
I quietly move toward a new frontier
