“Regret” by Anonymous

sinks in

and slowly suffocates,

its grasp tightening

when you’ve forgotten it’s there

the pain is not in the memories

of him,

but in all the memories

that he will never be apart of

in the inability to remember

the last words he spoke to you

and not knowing

that the last time you touched him

would be the last

and now you collapse, knowing

that every moment you spend

without him

was a moment wasted

and wondering how

you had not realized this

before he was gone
