Until

Conflicted ~ Philip Brent

Conflicted ~ Philip Brent

I wander
A house
Known
As if my own
Wondering, pondering
Past interactions
Missed opportunities
Arguments
Confrontations
Love
Laughter
Anger
Sorrow
Could have been
Might have been
Other than it was
Other than
A tragic dénouement

A single
Word
Missed
Cue
Lost
Feeling
Reaction
Action
Blank look
Angry glare
Beady-eyed stare
Chance mislaid
Never noticed
Too far
Gone
Alone
Fearful
Never known

Past now
Time locked
Reflection
Without
Connection
Introspection
Confusion
Miscommunication
Harsh rejoinder
Sharp, snapping
Crossed wires
Barbecue fires
Links and dogs
Hamburgers
Rare steaks
High stakes
Impossibly precious
Yet lost

Useless
Now
Unfolded
Laid down
Unrest becoming rest
Silence
Pain eases, ceases
Regrets
Beget sorrow
Misaimed arrows
Painful turmoil
Tears, hopes, dreams
Reconciliation
Unreconciled
Stories remembered
Recounted
Smiles and pain
Mere wind and rain

But naught
When time
Long passed
Now past
Expired
Past due
No refunds
No exchanges
Discovery
Sans recovery
Misspent
Despite intention
Desire
Unexpected
Slights, fights
Unearned slander
Meaningless in hindsight
Forever unresolved

Indifferent time
Sweet caress
Harsh embrace
Denied stranger
Friend since birth
Always there
And
Ultimate
Mediation
Friend
Enemy
Relation
Remorse
Comfort
Exultation
Never
Too late found
Understanding

Seek not forgiveness
Step forward
Together
Discover
Explore
Common ground
A new land
Visited in years past
Inhabited in other
Lifetimes
Fairer climes
Never Doubt
Within
Hearts
Minds
Until
The final word
Fades
