Learning Still 

Learning still that promises, like breath, evaporate.

That lingering glances are just teases, false promises.

Learning still that tomorrow truly never comes, that broken hearts cannot be mended.

That saying “I’m sorry” is not enough.

That it is not possible to forgive or forget.

That the world is never enough.

Learning still that I am truly alone.

Learning still that I have not adjusted very well to what I have learned.

I am a published poet and short story writer. I have been published in SNHU's the penmen review. https://penmenreview.com/author/jenny-andrews is the link where you can find my poetry and a short story. Previously, I self-published my novel "Bully Another Day," "Short Stories and Vignettes", and a poetry book "Spaces between the Pause" on Amazon/Kindle. Due to abysmal interest in my self-publishing venture, I have unpublished those three projects. However, I plan to be more aggressive in trying to find a traditional publisher for these projects. My poetry book "Life at the End of the Rainbow" is still available on Amazon/Kindle in both paperback and e-book.
