Staring in the Face of Regret by Averey Respall
Sitting, Waiting, Procrastinating.
Later, After, Then.
This is it.
It's now or never.
A glimpse at the clock
Regret stares back at you
as you begin to doze off into your paradise.
You hate me.
I am your enemy.
I always have been and always will be.
You stare at me with the face of regret
and I stare back with the reflection from
my clear glass surface.
Every tick and tock is a taunt
to your everyday.
