“Falling In Love” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Falling In Love”

By Ashley O’Hare

Falling in love

is appropriately titled.

Years later the tickle

of a million butterflies returns

when someone mentions your name.

One day I know

I will run out of air

in the free fall.

When my heart clashes

with the stubborn ground,

I’ll be left with only

bittersweet memories.

For the time being

I will clutch onto this naive hope

that these feelings

have a deeper meaning.
