That Which Stayed Unsaid

“Portrait of Ruth Rivera Marin” – Lola Alvarez Bravo, 1949

reading

through the

chronicles

of years

gone by

and i

wonder

where i

went wrong

and fell

apart.

of poems

written in

conniption fits

lies told

to hide

emotions

running haywire

of high

jinks,

of low

points

of those

school days

heydays

when we

didn’t know

better

and lived

our lives

as if

tomorrow

would never

roll around.

and i

only regret

things unsaid

pranks unplayed

love unspoken

kisses

kept away

lest things

fell apart.

and i

mourn

the spirited

girl

i was

and hate

this broken

woman

i’ve become.

but i

do not

regret

meeting

seeing

knowing

loving

you.
