REGRETS; a response to the poem “The Road not Taken”

The Road I took was the one traveled by, dirty beyond compare

The one always crowded and filled with regrets, that I couldn’t bare

I wish I took the road less traveled by

And take off my fake disguise




I still remember that moment, the wind in your hair

And I was staring at you like an owl but you still didn’t care

My chances were low

And my hopes were high

I was ready to say it, I was ready to try

But it wasn’t enough

So I chose to back down and give it all up




I regretted that moment every single day

Because you always regret what you don’t say

So I try to hide the pain with just a single smile

To keep my heart from aching, every once in awhile 

The End
