regret by phil burns

Click here to hear the poet read his words:


you smiled and turned your face to mine
my soul began to shiver
I knew that when our lips first touched
my life would change forever

when your sweet breath entangled me
like a song without a sound
a perfect harmony of love
my world stopped spinning round

when I looked into your moonlit eyes
and saw the love that shone
I knew that I’d keep holding on
till hope’s last drop had gone

because I always understood
you were far too good for me
but I had to try to live the dream
praying for eternity

if I could go back to that night
just before our lips first met
and quickly walk away from you
I’d have nothing to regret

but then I’d lose those memories
that I can’t bear to forget
so I’ll hold on to the heartbreak
and the tears and that regret

    Just as good as your Friday Fictioneers sound bytes. No one died, but still sad.

Go on, say something, even if it's rude!
