“A Dead End” New Poem of the Day (2023)

“A Dead End”

By Ashley O’Hare

Your guilty eyes

will always give you away.
Every little white lie

slipping from your lips

won’t fall discretely into the abyss.

Now you’ve left me without a choice.

My blissful ignorance

and blind optimism

were discarded without a second thought,

like an old, stained childhood toy.

There is no way forward;

we’ve reached a dead end road.

I procrastinate turning around,

dreading the inevitable trip

down Memory Lane.
