“Hidden Truths” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Hidden Truths”

By Ashley O’Hare

I told everyone that I hate you;

if I never see you again, it’s too soon.

But I kept our old pictures

locked safely under the clutter in my dresser.

The truth I keep under lock and key

will never leave my heart’s safety.

I was too young to know

this love had nowhere to go.

I’m forever stuck with it.

I will always feel like this.

You’re the reason I take chances now.

One “what if” was enough to break me down.
