TOMORROW’S REGRET





The feeling it gives
The soothing feeling
The dangerous lightness
It creates a fake sense of calm and peace
It makes you laugh and smile
It transforms ugliness to beauty
You run after a human-sized mosquito and think you can catch it
You laugh even at the weirdest jokes
You kiss and make merry
YOU MAKE DREADFUL MISTAKES AND END UP IN THE BED OF ANOTHER


It tears your morning apart
And transforms a good morning to a bad afternoon
Your head seems heavy
You hold your head in your hands to confirm its size
Hmmm…it feels normal
And then you remember the previous night
Arghhhh…you turn to your right and scream
JUST BEFORE YOU PUKE ON THE SOFT RUG



Oh no! What happened last night?
She smiles at you
A smile so ugly
You shudder in fear
She tries to pull you back in bed
You wriggle free, grab your jacket and dash out
Leaving behind your shame
But not the memories
Dirty and shameful memories
A you that wasn’t meant to be
“HAD I KNOWN”!


The memories hunt you as you struggle with your house key
The quietness of your house causes you to shudder again
You look at the clock
The reality of time nearly tearing your heart apart
Sitting on the sofa, you try to gather your thoughts
The fear of the unknown
If only you had stayed at home…
The thought of your adulterous act been reveled
The look on your wife’s face
The fear of disrespect in her eyes
IF ONLY YOU HAD STAYED


Gently walking into the room
You go numb
Like the chilled air of winter’s night
You go cold
A sight so wrong
Oh, so wrong!
What happened last night?!
The sight of your wife’s corpse with another
Oh God!
And then it comes back to you

YOU KILLED HER!
