“Delusion” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Delusion”

By Ashley O’Hare

While I was fighting

to keep my head above water,

you were out there thriving

without a single worry.

Maybe your phone disconnected.

Maybe you fell blind.

Or maybe you were always

the wolf carefully disguised.

Funny how you were always there

to watch me struggle,

but never available

to lend a hand.

Don’t worry–

I’m a professional

at living in denial.

We’re fine.

Everything is good.

Of course I trust you.
