“Detailed Analysis” Poem of the Day (2023)

“Detailed Analysis”

By Ashley O’Hare

The note on my desk

has been read

and reread to death.

Nothing has been spared

from the detailed analysis.

Every stroke of the pen,

every chosen adjective

have been searched for hidden meanings.

Surely you would leave a lengthy message.

This unemotional goodbye

cannot be all I have

to remember you by.

Those years spend side by side-

the lessons we learned together through life-

was it all a lie?

Did I ever know

the person you are

behind the eyes?
