Rewinding past skirmishes
Regret like a tidal wave
Rocks on resentful oceans
Roils in seas of broken dreams
Restitution overlooked
Renders her bereft of hope
Redemption lost forever.

The image shows a young woman in a pensive mood standing outside a storefront. The glass behind her is reflecting a neon sign.

  1. It took me awhile to comment because this was so thought provoking. I had ideas that I couldn’t find the words for. Besides being sad, it’s a little scary, too. You really captured the feeling of the photo.

  2. I think we have all felt like that – lost and unredeemable.
    And yet I would like to believe there is always a seed of hope that when ‘watered and loved’ might just grow into something better than what had been …if allowed.
