Autumn Art in a Puddle, originally uploaded by Batikart.

I feel thick the tears swelling my troubles
to the most incredible proportions.
And I am parched for self-love.
Teetering on the edge of apathy and overwhelm.
I am anything but balanced.
I want not to dwell on the dissected parts of me.

Oh please!
Sketch me the tiniest wings of hope,
and I will take flight in a positive direction.
I will pack my displaced courage,
Leave behind the sentimental suits
Of guilt and disregard.
Stuff fat my pockets with every memory,
And I will be on my way.

TIME {Explored!}, originally uploaded by Angieā™„Nan.

Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity. – Henry Van Dyke

Time is beautiful, ethereal. I spent the majority of my life living without regrets. Minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years spent and no regrets. They were what they were, exactly what they were supposed to be, exactly how I arrived here.

Suddenly I find myself spending too much time, finite moments, regretting time already spent. At what point does this become an infinite circular loops of ridiculous? Regret will not change the past, the present or the future. Regret will not rewind time. Regret serves no purpose beyond dwindling precious time away.

This is what I must remember. This is what I must focus on. Forget regret, live. We only have this moment… and I choose not to spend this one drowning in regret.
