“My Mind’s Games” Poem of the Day (2022)

“My Mind’s Games”

By Ashley O’Hare

My mind must

truly try to torture

every existing

cell centered

within

myself.

Why else

would your face flash before my eyes

when I am feeling down?

Surely I did not

need to remember that

the last time I saw you,

everything fell apart.

Maybe it wasn’t your fault-

maybe that was too far.

But you

are forever connected

to the great blast

that destroyed my future-

soiling everything I had predicted.

I can run from the memories,

but I will never burn every picture.
