day 196

daily poem / poetry blog

if you’re listening 

i know you expect
to see something here

some specific words
your name but you're

not gonna get it you've
had all you're ever

gonna get more than
you were entitled to

if i'm honest + let's be
honest now can we

on this day the silence
is golden + my smile is

cheshire don't use the
internet to look me

up you won't find one
more whisper it's ash

in the grate of last
year's burned out fire

escape is not too much
of a word.
