“Seven Years” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Seven Years”

By Ashley O’Hare

It’s that time of the year.

The August heat

brings fresh tears.

How have we stumbled upon

this seventh anniversary

so quickly?

I thought it was yesterday

we were shaking hands

with a timid first glance.

Now that is ancient history.

Now the line has been drawn in the sand

that our bond is too fractured to withstand.

There are a million words

I wish I could say,

but the high road

has forced me out of your way.

Against every force of nature

there are eleven letters

I have signed, sealed, and delivered.

I did love you.
