“Labels” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Labels”

By Ashley O’Hare

Can I truly call it love

if what is clouding up my thoughts

are the words you didn’t bother to tell?

If you are never honest,

how am I supposed to solve this?

My head is spinning now.

I’ve been looking at the data

and our smiles on camera-

I don’t think our bond is strong enough.

I know this is tough,

but we are relying on nostalgia.

Nothing is adding up.

If you are really not the one,

why won’t your memory pack up,

go home,

and leave me alone?
