disappointment / regret

silent ache

crushing weight upon my chest

breath is shallow

forced

churning stomach

churning thoughts

racing in cyclical what ifs

head pounds

like a tightly clenched fist

can't let it go

but can't bring it back

regret

i should have

but i didn’t

i shouldn’t have

but i did

damn you

damn me

lost opportunity

impossible to restore

try to move on

but the bitterness

lingers

Since we are in poetry corner!

Had a camera
Did not take many pictures
So my wife made poem

Haiku

Vien said...

ummm, did you compose that Mrs. L.?

It's pretty darn good.

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Can't write poems
Boo hoo, boo hoo

Thanks Vien! =) I did write that, in a moment of inspiration.

Justice pointed out that it is really angsty and depressing, though, so maybe I should stick to happy poems on my blog! ;)

Vien said...

yeah, that's why I was surprised if it was you who composed it.

You're a chirpy person Mrs. L., not that poem writer.

Though I'm sure we all get our melancholic moments. ;)

That is just life reminding you how much it really sucks. And then you stick your head back in the sand.
