I can't believe it. This is so...similar. You see, December 14, 2002 I told my mom I hated her. The next day, after I had gone back home to my Dad's house (my parents were divorced) my mom was murdered by my step-dad. I never got to say sorry, though. The night I said that, she talked to me about what I wanted for Christmas, acting as though nothing had happened, but I could tell she was still hurting over what I had said. I talked to her coldly, still brooding. Of course, I was only 11 years old (now I'm 12! Almost 13!) so I was very childish and got mad over the simplest things (still do). She wore the shirt I told her I had never seen her wear, the next day. She died in that shirt...but still. I think our stories are so similar.
After it happened, I promised her, through prayer, that I wouldn't forget her. That's where I got my screen name. Anyway, I'm sure you don't want to have to read all of this. Great job. It made me want to cry! I remembered exactly what I had told her...and how I felt when she died...you captured your feelings really well!

This poem is just too wonderful to describe... Oh girl, have I cried while reading it! I sobbed like a little child. I admire your work, really. Being able to reach me so deep inside is a true talent. Keep the awesome work.

wow, that was so beautiful and inspiring. I have trouble telling my mom that I love her but after reading your poem, I think I will.

I am not quite sure whether your poem ~*Regret*~ is written from your personal experience or not. If this is the case, then I am so extreamly glad that you were able to set things straight with your mother before she passed away. *smile*
All things aside, ~*Regret*~ is a very heartfelt poem. From it's explosive beginning it really grabs your attention. It reflects the emotion of the moment, and parallels the anger you must have felt with yourself (imagining here, that it did actually happen *grin* ) later on when you thought of the hurt you imagined you could have caused. (No disrespect ment here at all. *smile*)
I adore some of the imagry you have used in your poem, favourites being:
"I remembered how she had grimaced
As if she had been stabbed."
"Then a film came over her
And her head drooped to the side."
They express so much.
Using the simple rhyming scheme that you chose, to me, conveys the simplicity of the story, and also the simlicity of the love between a mother and her child. It is a bond that can never be broken. It is eternal.
Fianlly, you ended the poem perfectly. In but two lines, you manage to express not only love but sorrow. Perfect.
love, bruises, glitter and sores,
