“Denial” Poem of the Day (2022)


By Ashley O’Hare

Living in denial

eventually comes to an end.

When reality comes crashing in,

your position is one I dread.

I’m sorry

your rose glasses

were stolen from your head.

I wish

I had the power

to speed through this painful process.

Alas, the damage is done.

Close your eyes.

Brace yourself.

The walls are going to come tumbling down.

Just breathe.

Damage can always be repaired.
