“Attached” Poem of the Day (2022)


By Ashley O’Hare

This emotional tether

begs to be severed,

but I can’t do it.

I’ve grown used to it.

If I lose it now,

I’ll be breaking down.

Not only will I have lost you,

but now your memory too.

Give me more time-

pennies on the dime

to pull myself together

if I am going to lose all of you forever.

No song on the radio

can make me unfold

like your voice and

the broken promises.

I’m getting there-

I won’t keep you long;

I swear.

Soon you’ll be rid of me;

forever free.
