It’s Theirs To Regret by Paul Tristram

When evenings bruise
thunderously with agony.
Teeth-pulling hours
grind sarcastically by
like a bile-full & useless
ball-sack on a razorblade.
Bee-stings in the eyes
and rejections are just
another echo…
to your diminishing shadow.
The dregs are all that remain
to wash down
the humble crumbs
of bad choices,
wrong decisions
and the catastrophic results
of missing by a hairs breadth
after leaving it too late.
The ‘Lesson Learnt’ part
is now so very easy.
It’s the miles and miles
of crawling through
the ‘Could Have Been Avoided’
wreckage…
cast adrift inside
with the word ‘CUNT’
branded everywhere
upon your ‘mouse in talons’ soul.
