Regret of silence

Regret of silence

I should have said something,
but I couldn’t say much back then
as words didn’t come out easy.

I swear, I had so much in my mind.
I have had this conversation
with myself for a million times.

I somehow knew already
that this day would surely come;
And I swear
I prepared myself very well for it.

But when it all happened,
I couldn’t say a single word.

You left me sitting in the corner while
I was desperately searching for the right words.

Something in me fell down to the ground,
clenching hard to my feet,
freezing me for a very long moment.
I could feel its weight down there.

Even the tears betrayed me then.
I just gazed and gazed and gazed in silence.

Despite of many bitter-sweet memories;
I now remember you,
with just one regret in my heart.

The regret is of loving you so hard
that I became such a coward
to let you walk through your mistakes so easily.

I should have stopped you.
Not for bringing you back to myself;
But to make you leave with a heavy heart,
unable to carry your character along.

I should have said something,
but I couldn’t say much back then
as words didn’t come out easy.
