NaPoWriMo 2016 – (Day Nine)

Hindsight

I should have fought harder,
succumbed to the screaming voice within,
and refused to let you go without a fight.

I should have fought harder,
clung tighter to the wreckage
of our sinking ship –
been more determined to find a lifeline.

I should have fought harder,
shown you how good things could have been,
if we’d only been braver,
more willing to take the risk,
than take the easier path.

I should have fought harder,
those fears which bubbled irrationally,
when you uttered those three little words,
and not run for the hills,
terrified how things were, gradually,
eventually, falling into place.

I should have fought harder.
