Should I tell her?

No regrets

I swear to you

not one.




a question in a text

a reply that fired a gun


fate’s bullet aimed straight

shattered my heart

another’s life saved.


If I had said yes

instead of no

would I still be alone now -

who knows?


Martyrdom – with a reward to come?

Or stupidity – my life coming undone?

Loyalty & mateship. A devotion that covers and protects, even to one's personal loss & hurt. Admirable & noble even if it can feel or look like stupid martyrdom. Thanks for sharing.

No regrets
Sounds bullet proof
But I'm not sure.

If I had said no
instead of yes!
Best wishes, Steve
