Poem of the week! Anna "On being left"

powbigWhat's that? Oh, it's Thursday*. Yeah, I know. Wait what? I didn't post a poem of the week last week either? Well, yeah see about that... I've been attempting to be a busy bee by working on the novel I started last month as a part of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and also life in general is time consuming as well. BUT I finally got to sit down and dive into some youtube videos last night (at about 3am) and came across this gem by Anna Binkovitz called "On being left". Talk about a moving piece! This poem gave me goosebumps because I found myself relating to the emotions 100% (just take a stroll through my poetry link and you'll see that I have written about the same topic over, and over, and over...so yeah, I have a tie to this piece). I'm really excited about this poem, I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did!
