Of love and regrets-

Of love and regrets-


And I let you go,
Do I regret it, No-
Except for the days the sunrises
And the nights the stars fall;
And the moment a thick cloud gathers
And the sight of a red golf;
And the diner across my apartment
And the scent of lavender plush;
And the moments your memories flash black
Like a blackout, clouding my neurons.

Regrets are part of a life lived
And your dreams demanded your call;
And I chose with all of my valor,
To give into what you want.
Was a month, then two, then silence
I knew for a fact- we were done.
And my heart beats just a little faster-
For your dream- was never me all along.

  1. Regrets of first para are better than reconciliation in second para. Particularly ‘and the….’ supplemented with marvellous phrases and words, as if written about something close, has a personal touch. And the sight of the red golf! Somehow, the tempo wades down in second para, as if author doesn’t heartily wish to regret or reconcile πŸ™‚

    Good Poetry.


    1. You have a great eye and you’re right too. I wrote the first part as a standalone but then, at the last minute decided to include the 2nd part, hence the difference.
      Thank you ☺
