For me, nothing is more powerful than my regret.
It feels like Everest and I can’t climb.
Living has become the hardest part.
It is measured in breaths successfully taken.
This is what winning feels like.
As hard as I wish, the past isn’t done with me.
You will never leave that moment in time.
We are like anchors forgotten in the sea.
What might have been felt as real and constant as a pulse.
Thunderously beating, I rise and collect myself.
Now, we pretend to be strong.
Not just for me, but for all of us.
Because we all have regret and lives to live.
Below me is a casket; it is holding you.
The words cascade from my mouth like never before.
In and out of an out of body experience, you guide me through.
I wish I could have done more for you.
This is my regret.
Be good to each other,
