Regret grabs my mind and forces

me to remember all the things I have

done and yet to do.

It twists truth into lies

so that nothing is safe.

Not the feelings closest to my heart,

nor the feelings deep inside.

Regret holds all of my emotions hostage

and only lets the pain go.

That pain makes the regret grow larger

till all of my other thoughts and feelings are lost. 

Living with this dominating monster

puts all that I love at risk,

and I can't do anything to hold it back.

I need the reassurance that not all

are cursed with this same demon,

so I force myself to see you. 

Everytime I put the ones

I love the most in danger

and for that reason I am sorry.

I regret every moment

I am near you

but I just cant stay away.
