“Homesick” Poem of the Day (2022)


By Ashley O’Hare

It’s impossible to admit

that I am homesick

for a place free of bliss.

I spent days and months

in a dark slump,

awaiting the day I could leave that “dump.”

Now I’m so sorry

for all the wasted money.

I want to go back-

please let me pack.

I promise to pick up the slack.
