“Change” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Change”

By Ashley O’Hare

Are you still the boy

who sent my blood to my cheeks

with a quick glance across the room?

Am I still the girl

who stumbled over her words

because her thudding heart was too new?

How much can time change?

I have said the words

over and over again,

but my heart

refuses to listen.

I’m over you.

I’m too grown for childish games.

These emotions

aren’t aligning with the new me.

How much have I changed?

How much can I undo?
