TOMORROW’S REGRET

Image

 
The feeling it gives

The soothing feeling

The dangerous lightness

It creates a fake sense of calm and peace

It makes you laugh and smile

It transforms ugliness to beauty

You run after a human-sized mosquito and think you can catch it

You laugh even at the weirdest jokes

You kiss and make merry

YOU MAKE DREADFUL MISTAKES AND END UP IN THE BED OF ANOTHER

 
 

It tears your morning apart

And transforms a good morning to a bad afternoon

Your head seems heavy

You hold your head in your hands to confirm its size

Hmmm…it feels normal

And then you remember the previous night

Arghhhh…you turn to your right and scream

JUST BEFORE YOU PUKE ON THE SOFT RUG

 
 

Oh no! What happened last night?

She smiles at you

A smile so ugly

You shudder in fear

She tries to pull you back in bed

You wriggle free, grab your jacket and dash out

Leaving behind your shame

But not the memories

Dirty and shameful memories

A you that wasn’t meant to be

“HAD I KNOWN”!

 
 

The memories hunt you as you struggle with your house key

The quietness of your house causes you to shudder again

You look at the clock

The reality of time nearly tearing your heart apart

Sitting on the sofa, you try to gather your thoughts

The fear of the unknown

If only you had stayed at home…

The thought of your adulterous act been reveled

The look on your wife’s face

The fear of disrespect in her eyes

IF ONLY YOU HAD STAYED

 
 

Gently walking into the room

You go numb

Like the chilled air of winter’s night

You go cold

A sight so wrong

Oh, so wrong!

What happened last night?!

The sight of your wife’s corpse with another

Oh God!

And then it comes back to you

YOU KILLED HER!
