“Atlas” Poem


By Ashley O’Hare

“Get over it.”

“It’s time to move on.”

“What’s done is done.”

If only they knew

how hard I have tried.

How, ever after I came to terms

with my past—

You still have your claws

in my future.

Now the visions that plague my sleep

Make The Conjuring rated “G”


They will never fully understand.

Only Atlas,

carrying the weight of the world

could fathom

the burden you have put my body through.
