Things I Longed For


So many things

I longed for

But so many things

I have been denied

So many times

Smoke just filled my eyes

So many tears

Ran freely as I cried


From the chambers of my heart

Pain so deep

So bittersweet

I am starting to forget

The meaning

Of regret

So many times
Smoke just filled my eyes
So many tears
Ran freely as I cried

Time to get out of that smoke and tear filled room - out into the sunshine, Tinky.

This is one of your best Tinka and I love it. IT is open,honest and sincere and pulls at the heartstrings knowing the depths of your passion. Well done though I am sure a painful write.

Reviewed by Sara Coslett
By forgetting the meaning of regret you have either grown, or become so frustrated by not getting your way that regret becomes an understatement. Not sure which way you meant it, but I like the rhyming in this poem. Something new for you. ~ Sara

Forgetting the meaning of regret means remembering the good stuff, like a pony hiding in the manure of life. Love the artwork, you got Talent Times Three Sis. Tinka, you know that don't you!?

" Non Regrets " is the great war cry of Edith Piaf..." the little sparrow "

That is bad when that starts to happen. Why not start some new ones if you can't recall the old?
