Regret is a six letter word Clawing at the heart, engulfing it in sorrow like the shriek of a lost soul, piercing like a razor sharp dagger Regret, the most undesirable emotion A concoction of fear, anger, and sadness FEAR of reoccurance ANGER that it ever occurred SADNESS because you can never go back and fix what you have done No matter how many times you kick yourself, you can never, ever go back Regret, causing you to question every and any decision you have and will ever make The agonizing torture of knowing you could possibly make the same mistake will haunt you, parallel to an evil spirit, sending a shiver straight down your core to the bone The difference being regret is inexplicable until you experience it's gut wrenching pain Because the ache of regret is horrifyingly unexpected, like an innocent venturing out into the ocean for the first time and finding yourself being torn apart by forces much stronger then you could ever imagine The thing with regret is that no one can quite grasp the feeling until they have felt it To get all of the warmth sucked out of your body to be replaced with a deathly chill Oh yes, then you will know
