Nope.

Nope.

A Poem by Brandon Wesley Mckay
"

not going to do it.

"
I am not going to write a poem about love. 
I shant write a piece about loss. 
The world has enough of that
I  don't need to add to it. 
So I won't be writing about
How this bed is too big now.
How I still sleep on the right side.
How I rearranged the room to forget how it looked when.....
How some places trigger all the waterworks without warning.
How I still don't regret buying the ring.
How I still don't regret not taking it back. 
How we feel like we lost a family member. 
How picking up the pieces isn't the same as putting them back together. 
How I have to avoid musicals now. 
How house hunting has become depressing. 
How much I hate inspirational memes. 
 
How much my mother misses you. 
Nope. I won't be writing about any of that. 
Instead. 
I will write about puppies. 
Everybody loves puppies.

Hi Brandon. I love this poem! I love how you've used a comical and yet sad theme to tell this story. We all have different experiences but many would recognise a version of this story in our own lives. It's really well written.
And yes, everybody loves puppies.
