15 Minutes


If I could have over just 15 Minutes
Which 15 minutes would I want back?
That 15 Minutes of passion
when I was making love not really enjoying it.

That 15 minutes before I got Married that marriage that fell apart or the 15 minutes before I got hired, hired to that low paying stuck in a rut job.
ORthat 15 minutes to that institute of HIGHERlearning
Where I learnednothing that wouldhelp me through LIFE

If I could have 15 minutes over AGAIN I would somehow still be wishing I had another 15
MINUTES
Over AGAIN

    i'd use the 15 minutes 2 change a time, when i was doing something
    from my, 'do not do' list.
    that my 'do' list says don't ever do.

    good read this morning. (Report) Reply

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
