“Opposites” Poem of the Day (2023)


By Ashley O’Hare

Opposites attract.

Red and green.

Power and envy.

Burning desire and sickening jealousy.

It’s a burden,

this high intensity.

Can human minds handle

the constant overwhelming stress?

Get your eyes checked.

Lines are easily blurred

when your reason suffers from neglect.

Be cautious:

when reality is breathing down your neck,

fantasy will distract you with empty promises.

This force

is grotesque.

Don’t let it reject

the logic you have left.
