Bittersweet

Revisiting your past

is bittersweet

for it feels like your life

is stuck on repeat.

Too hard for you to learn

from your mistakes

and too easy to take comfort

in your heartache.

Imagining how your life

might have turned out

if you had embraced the love

instead of the doubt.

These memories only serve

to reinforce your opinion

that all those years ago

you made the wrong decision.

You ran away so as not to

confront your humiliation

and by the time you returned

were no longer part of the equation.
