I. A Letter of Regret

I

i let you go while still madly in love with you
and ever since then, there’s an ache
within me, a longing that will never
go away

 

 

perhaps, i am paying for my sins
i should have held onto you, clung to you,
buried you in me,
i should have done anything but let you go

 

 

and it is too late now,
i know that my love

 

 

so i will keep on telling myself
that i did the right thing,
that this pain will vanish one day,
that some day i’ll learn to forgive myself

 

but i know, i know
i know

                      i won’t
