No Regrets

Written by: Rhea Daniel Dear

Find yourself
Come face to face
Against a wall or
In a warm embrace.

See yourself
A slivery shadow
Eager to pounce
ready to know.

Touch yourself
A string of words
Snapped by emotion
Fired by verbs.

Smell yourself
A certain stench
Washed in blood
Do not flinch.

Taste yourself
A salty rage
Bitter as bile
Or sweetened by age.
