Haunting Regret


the moon was shining,
streaming through the fog
just like your tenderness
was breaking through my confusion.
i felt the grass under my feet
soft and tender -
but still less green
than my bleeding heart.
i looked into your eyes
and saw the scars on your soul.
but, love, did you even look into mine?
because if you did -
you would have seen the pain
cascading through my veins.
but those words -
i would try to take back,
if the universe would pity my plight.
because they chase me still
with their haunting regret
and i try to forgive myself,
and i try not to take flight.
