Dripping eyes
Confusion raced
Ripping heart
Stoic face

Eyes turned cold
Settled in space
Ripping heart
Stoic face

Burned and ripped
through loss
changed and hardened
no more cost

Everlasting mind my rune
Embraced that bittersweet tune

And it settled
it subside
Burning regret
could no longer hide

forthright coming
out of new
embraced regret forever true

Tattooed on my spirit
forever changed
Regret I hear you call my name

As I face you right here, right now
I would not leave you anyhow

You made me better
you made me real
you came to save me,
my trepidatious fear

Burned and formed
into my soul
never will I let you go.

Much more laughter,
much more joy,
mixed with pain better by far.

Oh, I need you,
my close friend
You always make me
convalescent in the end.

    Wow, powerful words spoken straight from the heart.
    Thank God we have Jesus to always hold us through these times.
    This reminded me of a poem I wrote.
    Here is the link…

    Lisa, that is a lovely poem! I do get it. It pricked a little as I read it. 🙂

    I think about regret and see two paths, Peter or Judas. Peter embraced his regret and although he went back to what he knew, he did not give up. He was given the opportunity to accept his regret and move on. When Jesus asked him three times “Do you love me” I wonder how much of that was Jesus telling Peter to embrace it and now go and do something useful with it.

    As I look at Judas, I see a man who didn’t have it in him to deal with his regret. He ran and got swallowed up in it. He too had a choice and could have used his regret for good. We can have a spiritual death or even lose ourselves in regret which is in a sense death. When swallowed in it we can only focus on our pain and forget to see the good that comes with heartache. No matter how much is burns it is good and useful.

    Sorry I didn’t mean to go on a tangent it just came out!

    Love and blessings my friend!
