Familiar Territory (by Black Angel)

 

 

FAMILIAR TERRITORY

 

 

I should have done this.

I should have done that.

 

Life is littered with a million and one laments

All competing for the grand prize,

Alpha dog in the sled race that is life.

 

I should have done this.

I should have done that.

 

Regret after regret commit suicide from a tower

A torrential downpour

A forever-deepening ocean.

 

I should have done this.

I should have done that.

 

They fall…

Bidding disingenuous salutations.

Masking ugly scars.

Prolonging intense chapters.

 

I should have done this.

I should have done that.
