steals away my life and loves and leaves me with only the shadows

Regret


feels like waking up to an unrequited pillow

looks like her slender fingers slipping around a door handle

colors my red-wrought thoughts

Regret


is when my eyes are untouched but my hands ruled by tempest

tastes like a slow sip of curdled milk
Regret

smells like unwashed bodies shining with the sweat of remembering

is the picture of a ring framed with hope but lost in the dust

Regret


looks like the lemon tinge of a barely born bruise I forget making

feels like a monstrous balloon in my head feeding on my broken promises

sounds like the bottomless silence after she hits the floor

Regret


is like an apology wearing away at the chains in my heart
