I shouldn't have held your hand,
when you asked me;
because you didn't really love me.
You warned me of the consequences,
admitted your faithlessness,
even mentioned my worthlessness.
I let you.
I shouldn't have let you kiss me,
When you held me;
Because for you it was a game
You emphasised its lightness,
stressed its momentariness,
specified its meaninglessness.
I gave in.

I should have, I shouldn't have' end up clouding "I did" in our memories. I wonder, if our ability and tendency to retrospect is a boon or a bane.ReplyDelete
A boon definitely. Gives rise to wisdom, I guess.ReplyDelete
