Regret is beautiful                   (new)

Whitened fingers caressing
The vagueness of memory

Teeth and lips and tongue
Trying to entice escaped air
Back into the body

Saddened eyes
Watching receding waves
Succumb to the immensity of ocean

Realizing that yesterdays stretch
Beyond what the horizon knows
Forever and forever

And accepting that the turning of the earth
Gets us no closer

That pain
Is beautiful
