He gazes at her with longing,
to touch, to hold in a sweet embrace,
knowing that her heart is now distant from him,
she has moved on to the landscape,
that crafts her closer to the reality,
that his love was never fully there for her,
and he cries inwardly with a deep seeded
regret of his own doing,
she smiles with a heart forgiving him of the past,
while all the while he knows that what’s done
can never be undone,
and he whimpers inside himself
with a sorrowful grief,
at the loss of a treasure he chose not to value,
that has buried his heart into a deep cavern
cascading over an open grave.
As he watches her sail away into the foriegn horizon,
where another has caught her gaze,
for the other man receives her in fullness,
holding fast to her like a valuable ruby,
More like an answer to a lost dream.
The man that is left now sits condemned in his regret,
is wrapped with a mummified shroud,
of losing that precious and endearing love
left to reminice of her as he remembers how
She is a gentle dove with a heart so pure,
and he is but an open tomb,
confused in his regret he obsessess to possess
her heart that yeilded to him from a time past,
Not noticing that she has already been set free,
from the shallowness of a broken-heart.
An empty relationship that only existed in her own mind,
as she soon realises and is now awakened,
to find that only she had to learn to survive this broken fate,
a loveless communication of unrequited emotions,
abandoned by his lies and blinded by his sweet nothings,
she escapes into the sun that bathes her with her freedom,
to never look back at the tomb,
of a skeleton that now remains,
for she has found a true love that came and set her free,
to believe in a love that is real,
The man of Regret,
He steps forward with many words of sorrow,
trying to claim her heart once again,
forgetting ever so quickly,
that she can already see the truth between his lies,
and he continues to chase after her,
as she speedily walks away,
yet dimly he traverses over an empty hope that is
unyielding to his persistance to lay ahold of her.
After discovering the dream of what he lost by his own doing,
by his betrayal, his regret tortures his soul,
as his hunger ravenously leads him on,
to pursue her with a grevious lust left in his gaze,
and with an unrelenting zeal to chain her,
to hold her down to him,
he is now blinded by the evil of his tainted desire
that chose to lock him still.
is how the man with regret has come to know,
What love is and was and now is forever gone,
and ending that bad fortune has foretold.
Unable to assess that why she left
was not because he had chosen to abandon her first,
and yet he stalks her like a prowling lion,
not realizing he could never love her in the end.
