“Irreparable” Poem of the Day (2022)


By Ashley O’Hare

We said we would get matching tattoos

so we would never be apart,

but you one-upped it;

you left me branded.

My heart still feels the sting

of every missing piece

you took with you-

you left my lips blue.

You can’t give it back;

it’s long gone in your trash.

This scar tissue is trying its best

to replace what you snatched.

When I meet someone new,

he won’t know what to do-

a heart shouldn’t be black;

a heart shouldn’t fall flat.
