Belonging Regret

A lifetime of regrets fills my every waking thought, and my dreams are nightly littered with remorse.

Built on recognition of the pain I have caused the ones I love, those from whom I’m now divorced.

And built on utter disbelief that I could have been the man I was, to have wasted those precious years.

To have so little understanding of what was going on in our lives as I made everyone share my fears.

Please believe me when I say that I never once meant to hurt you, never once really saw your pain.

All I can do now is apologise, become the person I should have been all along, and wish I could do it all again.
