Clearing the Air

Clearing the Air
by Anne E Thompson

As the poison seeped
out from him,
Lifting his heart and
freeing mind,
It flooded her eyes
and blocked her nose,
Drowned her dark, secret places
and eroded her spirit.
It diminished her light
souring her joy,
Leaving nothing light or free
within her.
But he felt so much better
For having said.
