“History Repeats” Poem of the Day (2023)

“History Repeats”

By Ashley O’Hare

If memory serves me right,

we have been here before;

my throat tight,

crying on the floor.

If I remember correctly

this story has no happy ending;

my palms sweaty

as I drop all hopes of a wedding.

If the statistics are true,

I am not alone.

Once and for all I should turn from you

and permanently delete your number from my phone.
