Non, je ne regrette rien, sang the Sparrow. I, however, regret much.
I regret I never realized until too late my own rough beauty, for if I had I might have lived a different, better, braver life. I regret the words I threw and cannot call back that served no purpose but to hurt. I regret the tunnel vision that kept me blind to all that happened around me for too long; for had I lifted my eyes from my own dark pageand paid attention I might not have lost that which I loved best.
But most of all I regret the absence of love not simply because a sandwich shared is infinitely more satisfying than a banquet alone, or because laughing at something genuinely funny by oneself so often rings hollow, or because I am afraid to be alone, although the nights are long and I smolder with passion unslaked, but because it is a matter of survival.
I am brimming with my own liquid silver love to share. It threatens not to evaporate but to drown me should it overflow with no heart to receive it. I see no taker and I see no point. So let me choke on it, then, and be done. This is the regret to which I will surrender. 2013 RC deWinter
