“Time Travel” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Time Travel”

By Ashley O’Hare

If time travel was invented,

would you go back in time

to the day you met me?

Would you turn the other way

without a single word to say

and undo everything we became?

The rippling butterfly effect

could only leave me wrecked-

I don’t want to imagine

a life without you.

But if you wanted to know,

I would let you go

even if it meant I would be

forever alone.

I would rather face life on my own

than come face to face with your replacement.
