“The Band-Aid” Poem of the Day (2022)

“The Band-Aid”

By Ashley O’Hare

I can’t rip off the band-aid;

my brain won’t allow me.

It’s been through too much pain

to take chances lately–

it’s too soon to risk

letting any rain in.

If I cannot verbalize three words,

will you accept charades?

The words may get stuck in my throat,

but there is always a loop hole.

There is no predicting how this will end-

I don’t have a fortune cookie.

All I have is a glimmer of hope

that you will take a leap of faith with me.
