Reading back my witterings,
some memories sing to me
whilst others jar discordantly
even though they're all painful.

The formatting defeats me,
overused italics and misplaced
semi-colons. Forgotten commas
and random inversions.

What was I thinking?
If I even was, with the heat
of adrenaline and pain rushing
my veins. The future beckons

and I'll make mistakes again.
