“An Incomplete Story” Poem of the Day (2023)

“An Incomplete Story”

By Ashley O’Hare

The pictures hanging on my wall

tell a story of the fall

of the hopeful.

The abrupt loss

of innocence;

of common sense.

It’s all out in the open.

A few years

are missing from the log-

intentionally hidden in a fog.

They’re useless to me now-

it’s not sweat off my brow.

Those chapters

deserve to fade away-

to hop on a boat

and find a place to stay

where they can’t hurt anybody else

the same way.
