“Yesterday” Poem of the Day (2022)

Yesterday

By Ashley O’Hare

Yesterday I died,

but my heart is still beating.

I made sense of my life

for a moment fleeting.

All the progress dissolved at sunrise

when my eyes insisted on blinking

as I scurried to the clear pond.

Looking at my reflection is hardly reflecting,

but I tried for a moment longer;

fighting down my true feelings

because yesterday I lost myself

and today has lost all meaning.
