“Clueless” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Clueless”

By Ashley O’Hare

Everything seems hazy;

nothing holds any meaning.

I’m stumbling through life

like my shoes are tied together.

Why should I pour

my heart and soul

into something build to fail?

If all comes to an eventual end,

is it not naive

to hope to become the exception?

Love has always stumped me most.

We know frighteningly little

about the cause of our feelings.

How am I supposed to put my faith

into another’s hands?

Never have I been more clueless,

never have I been more scared

than when my heart

demanded to be heard

over my head.
