“Your Perspective” Poem of the Day (2023)

“Your Perspective”

By Ashley O’Hare

What did she look like:

that girl you met

before she suffered with regret?

Did she smile?

Did she hold faith in the world?

Did she run the extra mile?

Was she happy?

Was she trusting of speeches,

carefully written to be motivationally sappy?

Did the light in her eyes

remind you of something you despised?

Was it something she said

that made you move ahead

with your plan to mess with her head?

Are you happy?

Are you proud of the way

you sent her away,

crying in the taxi?

When will you admit

it wasn’t worth it?
