The Regret


So I wish for these moments to blur
The regret of some unspoken words

While I dread another course of conversation

I will take refuge in silence, golden


So I wish for these hours to turn
The regret of a forgotten errand

While I spend another night for the day

It will never be the same again

So I wish for these days to fade

The regret of a touch undone

While I feel through a numbing vacuum

That peels my skin like a burn


So I wish for this life to end

The regret of wasting a friend

While I live a world of vultures

I will cherish us like an old treasure


P.S. This poem is an ode to one of my favorite movies "The Hours" which I think gloriously embodies the feeling of Regret, a feeling innate to every human.

So I wish I come back to life again
The regret of some words unsaid
While I wait to rise again
I shall wait for us to meet again
