“Destination” Poem of the Day (2023)


By Ashley O’Hare

In my past,

I lived through days

that kept me awake-

they were too sweet;

they were too good to be true.

My night’s dreams

could not compete

with the waking moments

that I spent with you.

It was too much to request

that those glimpses of paradise

would stick around

and become the

destination of my life.
