Pieces That Don't Fit Together

The old attic of
forgotten memories
beckons me deep in my
slumber
so I dream up boxes and
open them up like wounds
(because they are).

Mistakes ricochet all over my
brain like the angry buzz of bees
on three shots of espresso
except it’s worse than an echo;
it’s life.

Powerful.  Regrets can be so painful to live with, but eventually you learn that all you can do with them is just let them go.  Give up that inner masochist.
