“Driving” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Driving”

By Ashley O’Hare

Driving in circles

waiting for my exit

to appear on the freeway.

Driving myself crazy

because I know

this won’t end my way.

The tank steadily draining

my neck is craning

for a final dash of hope.

My heart is craving

the path that will bring me

home.

I’m weighed down

by the words

on your final note.

I don’t know the way-

my GPS has been scrubbed clean.

All that is left for me

is to retrace my steps

and override the painful memories.
