“Dreams Within” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Dreams Within”

By Ashley O’Hare

206 bones

beneath my skin

long to understand

the science of within–

Why my body longs

for a location on a map

that my eyes have yet to see–

my mind is too worn to speculate.

If my brain

could find a way to manipulate

my beating heart,

perhaps my future could be projected.

These dreams

should have disappeared

with my childhood.

These hopes

should have faded

with the morning stars.
