Where do you keep your regrets?

Flipping the switch 
filling the room of regrets, mistakes and fears
with light.
I'd forgotten about this place.
I abandoned it so long ago,
but it still exists.
Did I think this space and its contents would disappear?
I guess a girl could hope. 
Foolish.
Turning the lights off only hides these things.
Who have I been trying to kid?
They've been here all along.
I told myself this place is toxic.
Maybe I should visit more often.
