Regret

I knelt down at a little creek
To cure my aching thirst.
But before the water touched my cheek
It asked me something first:

“Whose reflection is this here?
Does it have a name?
It has your eyes-full of fear
Yet I know it’s not the same.”

The silent voice then went away
To leave me all alone.
And in my thoughts the question stayed,
With the answer still unknown.

I gazed into the lifeless face
And, though I thought it strange,
Those eyes, that hair, the look of grace
Were once mine before I changed.

Now my eyes are dark and weary,
Worn out from hiding pain.
My tears are dry, my mind is dreary
And my life is in the drain.

So I dove into the crystal stream
To save the fragile child,
And as I leapt into the dream
The waves just glared and smiled.

The creek was winding and much too wide
The current took me fast.
I tried to swim against the tide
But I could not change the past.

    Sometimes we really do put ourselves in situations that we CAN NOT get ourselves out of but frantically wish we could. Regret is THE most perfect name for this poem, dear Samantha <3
