A Cache of Words Writer's Group Just Write Challenge
July 14th Prompt: Write a poem about regret
Deep in the night is when the ghosts come out.
Longing and dreaming and crying like babies;
Relentless haunts – no excuses
Of better things that kept me-
Make them go away.
Victories not realized;
Absolute darkness creeping in –
How can I make it up to you?
Forgive whatever you can...
I have no like-gift for myself.
