31-Day Poem: Day Thirty-One

Where Pain Is Peace Swaying on a String

These attractions were wrong
anyway, as they can only ever be
disrupted by a swift memory,

one that I have let go
but will not let go of me.

It’s the last I had, the last
I want. It’s the very reason
I’m glad for rejection
to be my life’s theme.
It’s the sole reason
a lovely vision (or three)
wills to remain a dream.
