Regrets

All it takes is one wrong move
and you’ll lose everything.
But I’m here, at the edge
of the earth, knowing all my sins.
The worst is that I hurt you the most.

  1. i love the transitions in this poem: reminiscent knowing voice in the head – “All it takes is one wrong move/and you’ll lose everything.” the present/moment of realization – “But I’m here, at the edge/of the earth, knowing all my sins.” the aftermath/return/reunion – “The worst is that I hurt you the most.” we never listen to the knowing voice in the head, and knowing our flaws and propensity for repeat offending, we go on and hurt the ones we love the most the most. a case of bipolar love. brilliant post.
