Best Poem of Oni Hayes

Never Conquers Bliss

A skeletal alien stares from the picture
Happy moments frozen in time
with only remembrances of illness

A sister’s sunken eyes
Protruding checks
Lean carcass
Emaciated

Don’t fool she’s fragile
No longer the elder playmate
But foreign enemy
Destructing our domestic industry
Is what my mother thinks we remember

Yet accounts never arise to thought
Hardly noticed we juvenile, filled with joy
A Maternal point of view placed in conscious
Never conquers bliss

Read the full of Never Conquers Bliss
