R - Regret

Image courtesy: Google

Do I regret the time 
we spent together? 
What once made me smile
Now carry remnants of hurt in them

Memories tainted by guilt
Yours or mine? 
All those nights spent in your arms
Seems so distant now

Riding on your bike 
Holding you tight 
Makes me reminiscent 
Of a time that was solely ours

Were you a mistake?
One that I willfully made?
All I know is that regrets I have none
You were a part of me and continue to be

  3. The last line seals it. You can never forget anyone completely. They always will be a part of your life :)

  4. It cannot be a mistake, as it was a choice and then it happened. Beautifully written.

  5. Beautiful!! I guess, she loved well, and therefore, it doesn't matter if he did or not.
    As the poem says, irrespective of whether things work out as we would have wished or not, we must never regret anything we do!

  7. You were a part of me, and I don't regret that. But you won't continue to be, and that is my decision to make. - My poem would end a little differently :P

  9. I absolutely loved this one! We can't really disown past experiences, they are a part of what we are.. Whenever I regret some action of mine, I tell myself that that was my choice at that time...that was exactly what I had wanted...otherwise I'll have to deal with too much guilt :)

    1. Thanks so much, Vidya :) How true. It is our experiences, both good and bad, that have made us the person we are today.
