Sometimes a regret comes back to life

to emerge as a poem

morphing as it translates into words

pain blossoming

on a single stem.

Each petal overlapping

some parts me

some parts you

forming an image fixed in time

an elixir of us

I drink in

to set us both free.

  1. A lovely write up again, Ali. Sometimes regrets can come back to us, like for you perhaps in the form of poems, for me it would be in terms of stories as I sit down and think about what I want to write. And then when you get to the end of expressing it all out, you feel like another person….and once again you’re better with the people around you 🙂

    1. Mabel, thanks for your kind words. I relate to your process of using writing to gain deeper insight into my life experience. It is a powerful way to see my own thinking. Do you always write alone or do you write with others? Thanks for the light you shine by sharing your journey.

      1. I definitely write so much better alone. Writing with others in the past, I’ve not felt so comfortable. That said, I’d love to write with someone that I click very well with. Have not met a person like that. Maybe one day.
