“Your Words Are Mine” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Your Words Are Mine”

By Ashley O’Hare

Your words

will never be worse

than mine.

Go ahead–

waste your energy

trying to knock me down.

Anything you say

I can guarantee

I have told myself one hundred times now.

Don’t show me

sympathy.

Don’t look at me with

disgust.

Don’t give me

anything.

There is nothing left

that I trust.
