“Deadline” Poem of the Day (2023)


By Ashley O’Hare

Was my heart skipping a beat,

or was it anxiety?

Did you care about me,

or was I convenient company?

Your intentions have always been disguised:

a wold in sheep’s clothing,

or a modern superman?

Tell me the truth.

Much of my life has been wasted

waiting on your cue

to open communication.

I can’t wait forever.

I’m setting the timer.

By the strike

of midnight,

I am giving up

on the possibility

of a shining, brave knight.
