Forevermore

“In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.”~Robert Frost

The “what ifs,” the “could have beens”
cloud my thoughts and actions.

Forevermore.

They’d come back, I was told
to haunt me.

Regrets.

I go back in time
I choose differently this time.

Another chance.

I live in the past
The present drifts away.

Another mistake.

Now I am thinking
about “what was but will never again be”

Torment.

To have something
only to lose it.

Tragic.

My heart’s greatest desire
Became ghosts in the shadows.

Irony.

what hurts more
“what ifs” or “what weres”

Another question.

The past is a deadly place to live in
I wish I could tell my younger self.

A warning.

Lessons I learn, consequences I face
Forward, I hope I move.

Forevermore.

Very thoughtful post. “what hurts more “what ifs” or “what weres”. I guess they both can hurt equally so. But perhaps I’d prefer the what were cause then I had a chance to experience it in some way more than just a dream.

Hi Benjamin, that question has been floating around for some time now. I completely agree with that. I’d choose to at least have the luck of experiencing it once. There’s pain on both ends of that question. Probably wise to choose the one that at least let’s us have our heart’s desire, even if momentarily. I am pleased that you had a good read. Thank you for taking the time to read and comment! Have a blessed day. 🌺

Exactly as you say. That’s how I feel. But sometimes the heartbreak it worth it. The moments are things that you can replace or get back. Best not to take them for granted. A good memory always get to stay a good memory. You have a great day!
