Regret

Regret
I never realized that when you
Spoke those unkind words
The wall raised between us
Would not crumble before my sanity

Things happened that I will always regret
Things haunting me I will never forget
No matter how much I pray
I cannot erase what’s written in stone

I begin to resent myself
I wish I could rip my soul from its hollow shell
I will never forgive myself; apologies cannot fathom
I never meant to make you cry

Even though I gave you my heart
Beating in your palm
You crushed it by your own will, along with my soul
I never wished to hurt you
I never thought I’d say those words

This is hauntingly sad and well written. I love how much imagery your words contain. You should post more because you are obviously very talented. If you get the chance could you possibly look up and rate/comment my first piece of work; Leaves Of Youth? Thanks.
