Living with regrets and mistakes

Regrets come from the mistakes I make that seem to never go
they are there when I smile and joke because in my eyes they show
they are there with me in my bed while I lay awake thinking
but I act like everything is fine so people stop with shrinking
plus I'm suppose to be this and be over you, over us and our love
it wasn't real though or it wasn't right according to your god above
this relationship was just depended on or codependent or some dependent
and you thought you left me thinking I couldn't be anything when it ended
maybe you were right because here I am alone and writing about you
but I write out of anger and pain because that's the writing I do
so don't think that this poem is me saying I love you and miss you
yeah I have regrets and have made mistakes but that doesn't mean I'm blue
this is just me trying to get over you and what I've been through because of you
I was stuck to you and thought I needed to be with you and stay stuck like glue
just so I can be smiling but here I am not even in tears or in fear of anything
I'm reminded of my mistakes every day for a reason and that reason is clear
clear like the blue skies that independence from love is very close and near
no strings attached, no catch, no walls up, and no more wanting or needing
just me, myself and I and for this heart for nobody does it belong or is beating
the single life sounds free and lively like a tiger in it's habitat roaming free
or a queen in it's honey home with no worries but just being a queen bee
so I'll live with my regrets and my mistakes and go on with my life
with no help with anyone and in the future I'll finally settle down with a wife.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
