“Like It Was Yesterday” Poem of the Day (2022)

Like It Was Yesterday

By Ashley O’Hare

I remember it like it like it was yesterday:

my racing heart,

the intense queasiness in my stomach

as I hoped you felt the same way.

Flash forward to now,

we’re approaching the ten year anniversary

of our first meeting

and you are no longer around. 

I thought my heart was strong enough to shake you

the way my brain lost the ring of your voice,

but now and then I hear your name

and those bruises are freshly blue. 

No matter what I do

I remember you.
