r e g r e t

Tear me open
with all
the ignorance
that you got,

Don’t be surprised
if you don’t find
the usual
bleeding heart,

I did what I did
without a thought
for any gain
or loss,

Vanity, pride, pretence
were irrelevant
in my falling
for you,

The admission
of the same came
as natural
as the rain,

The risk taken
was never for
the certainty
of a reward,

Being vulnerable
to chance the heart
was a compliment
to your worth,

The fear
of a notional loss
was eventually
a notion in itself,

Your walk away
in all fairness
still left me
where I originally was,

Your ignorance
was hardly a torture
for regret is always
a far crueler mistress.
