to start my life from scratch
regrets dumped on the way

I love the 'regrets dumped on the way' wish i could, how do you?

Nancy Bea Miller said...

Excellent reminder to dump the pain of regret, having learned (one hopes!) from the mistakes, and move on. I especially like how you took what could have used as a sad prompt and made it positive!

A New Year's Resolution: Making It Last

Percy Bisque Silley said...

I do not count Mineself amongst thy Toadies and shall not leave the sort of vain and idle "Rah, rah!" to which you have grown accustomed, Miss.

Your words here are a poor excuse, if I may be so bold, for a Poetic Post.

No doubt you languish on a sofal watching your American football on your widescreen TV from your flat in the Bronx and cannot be bothered with a poem at this time...

With Stern Reproofly
Aloofly,
Silley
