Regrets I Regret Regretting
Did you mention 'regrets'?
I have one or two, a few or possibly a million.
Depends on which way the wind is blowing,
and how gracious I'm feeling in the moment
Like, I'll never forgive that guy who butchered
my ideals of love everlasting, that'll last a lifetime
nor, when he lied about my best friend, just
to prove a point about promiscuity, all false
Too many detours to recall, but past grievances
should remain midst poetry's recollections,
not keep anyone awake at night,
although in the brazen light of day, it'll come to me
on occasion, that nasty lawyer he snaked for
our divorce proceedings, nevertheless
I slept with him in our bed, admittedly no regrets
there, and if perchance you're reading,
he was a much better lover than you !
To Regret or Not to Regret - it's fiction....
