I have nothing left,
and all I have is regret,
is this the way its supposed to end,
for me?
All day long,
I play a role,
of a person that's not me,
is she?
I have nothing left,
add all I have is regret,
for the decisions that I made,
the pathways that I walked,
I never wanted to feel this way,
I never wanted to believe this way.
And I have nothing left,
and all I have is regret,
for me,
for what I did to myself,
I placed myself in this situation,
I set myself up for this failure,
I never wanted it to be this way,
and I have nothing left,
and all I have is regret,
for the past few years of my life,
I want to go back,
but I can't.
And I have nothing left,
all I have is regret.

Wow! Heavy stuff... love the repetition of "regret," and how you treat it as a possession.

I like this poem in an odd way. I like how you keep bringing up regret it's subtle but definite... You know what I mean? I enjoy it
