Bad Choices Made Easy - Poem by Black on Black Arts

I could've made a left turn
instead I made a right
After an argument I said goodbye
I should've said goodnight
What was I thinking
Wanted to say I love you
But ended up screaming at you instead
Now you're gone
Going off to places that I rather go
but with you is where I should've been
I'm hopeless
Should've supported you more
your love is what i should have been
fighting for
I took you for granted
I thought you would always be there
Now I'm alone
because of bad choices made easy
Now I care

    Beautifully expressed. How often we wish we could go back and make a different decision or erase words we shouldn't have said. Words and actions which hurt others and ourselves. (Report) Reply
