Regret

I know that regret is useless

once the lesson is learned

 

To dwell

would be

to punish myself

 

and draw attention with raised flags

 

of no particular color

 

because it is already over

Ties to You

Ties to you

are pathways

stretching from the past

forever looking forward towards what comes next

 

it is as if our lives are so

closely, yet loosely intertwined

that we feel we may dangle common conversation

above the world

in easy contentment

 

and still believe that it is something new and grand

 

it is in this easiness

so entirely second nature

that convinces me to believe

that ties to you are really freedoms

 

reminding me of strength and

in other moments introducing me to

a unique meaning of happiness

that is bestowed upon me

 

for knowing you

Why I Write

I write

because my heart

itself

does not know

yet understands

that in the end

it will

start to know

it will learn

its own ability to change

and remain

to realize itself

it will always save
