Joe Hackworth


You wait patiently for me to smile
you had no idea what you were

getting into years ago when you said
i do and if i'd known would i have tried

to change your mind i don't think so
because i'm trying to follow the doctors'

orders and look there's one now
working at the corners of my mouth

just for you.

Joe Hackworth: I live with depression and panic / anxiety disorders. Still working on the meds. My work has appeared online in Clean Sheets Magazine, Poems Niederngasse, Issue 6 of PoetrySz, and will be published in a future issue of Eclectica.
