56 (who?)
I hate that there will always be
A lingering regret
An ache set so deep inside me
I cannot forget

I turned away as my thoughts strayed
“What chances have I missed?”
I don’t want one more regret
To add among the list

I need to know what could’ve been
What could become of this
I’ll take my chances, no regrets
For just one kiss…

Between what I feel and I say
Is what I don’t understand
You say it’s better this way
This is not what I had planned

I watched as you just walked away
“What chances have I missed?”
I’ll add just one more regret
To the top of the list

I need to know if you can see
There was something more to this
I’ll take my chances, no regrets
For just one kiss…

To taste your kiss…

Just one kiss…
Is that too much to ask..?

I'm in the same situation, and I've written about it a bit too.

By the way, great rhyming.

Regrets is just something we have to live with.

i really like it and it's nice to know that I'm not alone in what i think, although it does pain me to say that I've never had the pleasure of kissing someone

I like this a lot. It's like it's telling me, my life and my boyfriends. He need to read this.
I like the lingering feel of your poem...just like the lingering feel of a kiss....

Well. This just hit me straight in the feelings. T^T I like how relatable this poem is, and threpetition of "regret" really shows your despair and frustration. Very well written. ^-^

Thank you. I'm glad the message is clear.
:/ This makes me sad because I still feel like this in a way, I wish I could know what would have been... Ah well it is beautifully written <3 Sometimes it is too much to ask or so you think, but you never know until you actually ask...

I wish I had lived by those words my whole life... "You never know until you actually ask..."
Yeah... I wish I would learn to live by that myself, I am way too shy and tend to avoid interactions that I find scary which is a lot because I am afraid of people. Wondering what could have been if you actually asked when you should have is terrible, but then again, some things are meant to end when they end. Life works in strange ways and you might not have ended up being the person you are today if you lived by those words your whole life. I like you just the way you are and I really enjoy talking to you. :3
