Fiery Regrets - Poem by Torence Lavender
Entering the lonely apartment makes the unfamiliar mushrooms welcomed in my stomach as I consume them
to try to shroud the disaster I've started once again.
I try to catch the fire on my tongue before I breathe it.
My hurtful words will soon light our love on fire and make it desintegrate into the abyss.
I should have carried my emotions gently in a quart berry besket,
But I spilt them all causing everything to scatter.
Instead of using a screwdriver to piece back our relationship,
I'm taking it apart and hurting her.
I want to shrink to the size of a pea so I can crawl into your bed at night
and whisper into your ear that you should forgive me.
I didn't extinguish the fire this time
I only made it worse.
The word 'forgive' will soon go up in flames.
