“Ranking The Pain” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Ranking The Pain”

By Ashley O’Hare

Which hurts worse-

feeling too much?

or not feeling enough?

Maybe the numbness

was secretly giving me mercy.

My heart feels like it is at full capacity-

one more thought will send it into a frenzy.

All this nervous energy

fails to bring any favors to me.

My brain is not help;

it chooses now to dig through old memories.

Young me’s stupidity

is bringing the future

a real headache.
