All Regrets

Written by: Steve Voorhees

All regrets, in every backward flashback
leave bitter tastes like remorseful morsels
  left drowning in your tear welled eyes
    each day was longer and lower
      lower and loathing
        exposed naked in clothing
           open and empty without your
              ....trusting

All regrets, in every backward flashback
chisel names on tombstone with unforgivable clarity
   leaving unbearable burials beneath these wretched feet
      reincarnated daily sleighing me repeatedly with growing fervor
         fervor and hate
            filthy face washed over in angst
              closed off from safety and salvation without your
                 ....understanding

All regrets, in every backward flashback
grimacing sneers returned in mirrors like evil staring contests
    every showdown lost in landslide fashion, reflection laughing
       devoured each hour as they slip by consuming
          consuming and draining
             worlds worth of words and deeds beyond explaining
                I'm only half as good and partially whole without your
                      ....forgiveness
