Regrets ..COMPLETED!!!!!

PP Elite

So, I would like to continue the tradition of postpoet collaboration on a massive scale.

I will be writing a piece about Regrets. I'd like everyone to comment a few lines so I can compile them all into one epic song.

Thank you,

Apologies to all...I've been slightly overburdened and scatterbrained as of late, but do not fear, I will compose this collaboration.
Continue to post until the comments are disabled.

So, all postpoets...weigh in, leave some lines, and in the words of the ever brilliant ashes_twisted
"Write something regrettable"

--- A chorus line ---

Regretting, forgetting, fragments of yesterday
Upsetting, unsettling, memories that won't go away
You can let them tie you down
Or you can force them out
A regret is just the proof
That one more lesson was learned
A regret is just the truth
That human is what you are

I can't forget the things that I regret
I still regret the things I can't forget

Comments are now closed.

Life is a prison full of

Life is a prison full of unforgettable regrets as inmates;
One can never successfully escape without getting caught by memories.
They pull you back by strings connected to regrets
Like a dog chained too its house of punishment for forgetting how to behave.

Sorry if it's a bit long compared to the other lines :P

Branded forever more The soul

Branded forever more
The soul cursed of regret.
Tow that weighted bauble
Shackled and bound by it's ball and chain
Mocking reminder never far... never far.
Taxing... tiring... exhausting...
Promising no future step will know of free stride.
Bang the walls of your private hell
As life passes by the window

Sorry I'm late, and sorry to everyone that I'm behind on reading. I've been jammed up at work lately, but I'm freeing up a little time finally ;-)

Things said and left unsaid,
nights spent in a lonely bed,
days without a knowing smile
and thoughts that roam like ghosts.

Tick Tock ROC. ^_^

The shedding of tears upon one's face..
Do not look at them with regret,
but of the lesson's learned.
The colorless pour that cascade down cheeks are not mistakes,
but memories that which were formed.
Reflections are seen in saline drops.
I regret nothing in my life,
but I do repent some days,
because of most things..
Like trying to add to the recollections that detach themselves from my own irises.

Tick tock

that is awesome, you have just convinced me that this tale will need chronology embedded.

Time will heal all wounds, they say
But will the regret ever go away
Or is that something that must be faced
To cope with the lessons of yesterdays

Every page turned lies a

Every page turned lies a hidden regret
Some things in life we never forget
Like the lost chance to dance on a shifting carpet
Or a day without seeing the stars while lying on a parapet

;) it's. bad but you can make it good ;)

Don't let any one shake your dream stars from your eyes, lest your soul Come away with them! -SS

Just the sound of it makes my tummy feel queezy


Festering in the belly.

Churning into jelly.

They're becoming solid masses.

I try to release the gasses.

Let them go...

Try not to pout...

Don't regret...

Shit them out...

Live and learn...

But don't forget...

There's no use

in living with regret.

I think

that I can definitely work most of that in. I might have to write alternate versions considering the input already given.

I have so many

I have so many regrets
Created by many mistakes
I wish that I had crossed all those lakes
Everything is implanted in my head, it won't go away
I wish that forever in your arms I could stay
Because with you there no wrong, there is no mistakes
Ther are only beautiful memories. There are no regrets.
I want to be taken back to those beautiful times
But I've been robed of those memories. I've committed too many crimes.

If you want me too keep helping you let me know

there are many things in life

there are many things in life i regret
i know some of them havent even happened yet
i fret, ive spent to much time on this qualm
am i wrong, to be shattered by this bitter bomb

i long for repentince, expectance of healing
from old loves, lost friends, actions that are unappealing
im dealing with regret, i fret it keeps digging
soon it will reach my core, what then? im not kidding

its digging, the one that hurts the most
is the lost love, the one that i held close
no hopes, in her return she will not be found
like a box for lost gloves, trinkets, my mind is bound

to the thought of her, an everyday occurance
noone to take my mind out of the box im sure its
due to the fact that i fail to repent
thats why im stuck with this unbearable regret
