Exorcise

Truthfully,
I cannot remember
the last time
I felt content.
The past few years
it’s as if
I have been wandering
listlessly
from place to place,
like a ghost
who hasn’t a ground
to haunt.
Though my body and mind
have been freed,
my heart continues
to yearn
for that which breaks it.
Perhaps we are not
so defined by our joys
as we are
by our pains.
