I’ve been here before, haven’t I?

With my bare feet burning in snow,
carelessly holding spike of sorrow,
assembling directions out of another lost trial
but do I remember the exit and which road to follow?

Do I hope to break free, to rescue the moral left in me?
Blind, deaf and senseless is there a chance to borrow?

Love only? How did my heart let it be enough?
Old matches? How did I let them turn into fire?
And that letter with scribbles in Arabic that
you thought I won’t be able to read … Damn it!

Once again I will change my relationship status from
“happily in love” to “still in love, but torn by doubt”.

Once again, I will watch regret marching next to me,
I will let disappointment to teach me what grief is,
to accept it and count the tears as dear lessons,
once again, I will turn every wrong desire away.

    Hey Blagga

    Happy Rally !

  3. Jamie Dedes Says:

    The icy truth. Sharp-eyed and skeptical. Unfortunate story. Fortunately poemed by you. Fine work, Blaga.

    Isn’t that you’re mom’s photograph? Such an attractive lady and has the look of someone with an acute mind.

  4. Jingle Says:

    I write a piece about dying relation today.

    you deserve love.
    stay upbeat.

  5. dragonkatet Says:

    Very, very well expressed. Life is too short for regrets, in my opinion. And yet, I think we all still manage to find them, somehow. Those missed opportunities and later when we wonder, “what if?”. It takes a will of steel to always adhere to our morals. Temptations continue throughout life. The lines “Once again I will change my relationship status from
    “happily in love” to “still in love, but torn by doubt”.” are the most powerful lines in this piece, I think. They kind of wrap up everything else about it. I hope you won’t let the tears teach you for too long, my friend. The lessons will either ‘stick’ or they won’t. Life continues and so must we all. :)

    Amazing – again, Blaga – you never disappoint me!!!

    “… assembling directions out of another lost trial
    but do I remember the exit and which road to follow?”

    Lessons we have to learn … stepping stones to true happiness …

    Wow, I don’t think I could write a poem on regret any better than this. Very powerful poetry you’ve got here girl.

    “Once again I will change my relationship status from

    Somehow really jumped out at me, for I know what that feeling is…very powerful lines.

    Striving to learn sometimes gives us consequences we don’t want to face. Leaning early does have it’s advantages though.

  22. plaridel Says:

    when in doubt, follow your heart.

  23. Amropali Says:

    Decisions and their implications. Sometimes it is too scary to be able to just decide and be comfortable with it. the ‘what if’s’ haunt you.and sometimes regret follows.

  24. The Reason You Come Says:

    I think this used to be my song. The words are exquisite, but the pain is not. I hope this is fiction.

  25. Judy Roney Says:

    Just beautiful! “Count the tears as dear lessons” is a lesson in itself.

  26. Tom Baker Says:

    Brilliant! What a heavy heart to have to carry around.

  30. Paul Says:

    Trying to pick out a piece I like best, but I really just like the whole thing. All very well done!

  31. Cherlyn Says:

    Sorry for the extremely late comment, but I told you, I’d eventually get to your amazing posts.

    This poem really captured the feelings of regret, pain, betrayal – it is utterly sad, and I hope by now you don’t feel like this!!
