“Numb To The World” Poem of the Day (2022)

Numb To The World

By Ashley O’Hare

He was sunshine

peeking through the fluffy clouds.

He was hot chocolate

during a brutal snowstorm.

He was a stubborn dandelion

erupting from the cracks in the concrete.

A reminder that

there is warmth to be found

in every corner of the universe.

But he was my life vest

in the rough rapids.

He was my medicine

in my bathroom cabinet.

He was the music

singing symphonies in my ears.

Without him

I’m afraid I won’t feel warm;

that I’ll be numb to the world–

oblivious to the best

and the worst

that life has to offer.
