“Count To Ten” Poem

Count To Ten

By Ashley O’Hare

They were not joking

when they told me

that my mind is powerful.

I convinced myself

that you were safe.

The level of disillusionment is astonishing.

I have been fighting to train myself

to fall back to my core

and leave you in the rearview mirror.

Convincing myself that I am safe

is nearly impossible

when you have blocked my one and only escape.

Closing my eyes

I will count to ten

and hope that when they open

I will be whole again.
