97th Weekly Poetry Contest winner: Irony

by N. Muma Alain

My lover gave me another promise today
So fake it's almost authentic!
Fit to be hung on the wall,
Right next to the others before it,
Ready to be dusted and left unused...
Funny how that one wall stands out as beautiful
In this downright ugly house!

This poem first appeared in GREY MORNINGS, BLACK NOONS AND WHITE NIGHTS. It has also appeared in Easy Street Magazine and Moledro Magazine
