Regret: A Monologue

Ego, please have mercy!
I was trying to ameliorate.
I know I did the opposite,
served only to exasperate.

The last memory we now have
is of my being overbearing,
is the shame of irritation caused,
is regret. I was too daring.

I was hoping to give one last gift,
a fond and grateful ending.
Instead, I made a fool of us.
Now to wounds we will be tending.


Subconscious, it is difficult.
I am shamed by your indulgence.
I was hesitant at this, the risk
of even one last kind divulgence.

Our forebears taught me to be harsh;
I am tempted there once more.
Though, you give me pause, for cruel rebuke
will not morale ensure.

We both must bear indignity.
We hang by the same tether.
I will swallow down the bitter blame
so we may take the blow together.
