House of regret

entry picture

no more returning

no matter what the voices say

never to drink the same tears

or consume regurgitated  sorrow

I have embraced unwanted ghosts

for the last tormenting time.

The resolution will be hard to maintain but the only other option is to go on being pulled back into the blame game by one's self. Douglas, Rose, Martin, Leon, KJ, Desmond thank you.Jemima.

A strong poem that means, to me, the first steps towards a different (and hopefully better) path.
