“Damp Eyes” Poem of the Day (2022)

Damp Eyes

By Ashley O’Hare

I miss you.

I thought I could live without you,

but my heart refuses to work

when it cannot sense you nearby.

I’ve never been the type to cry–

certainly not over a guy,

but in the thousand days you’ve been gone

I haven’t seen one with dry eyes.

It should be a crime

to make a person feel so low

without even trying.

It’s pathetic, I know

that I still think of your face

when I’m up late

in the pale moonlight.

I know I said I would be fine-

we both told vague lies;

promises we could never keep

claims we do not believe.

This one is killing me.
