Things I Should've Done

Things I Should've Done

A Poem by PadfootBlack

A list poem. Self explanatory.


Things I Should've Done


Said no.

Hid my tears.

Gone alone.

Walked away.

Stopped talking.

Hugged you.

Told you I loved you.


Forgave You.

Cried in your arms.

Said yes.

Author's Note

Short, I know. But... to the point, I hope. Thoughts?

How is it possible for you to sum up the story of our lives in such a short and simple poem...? "Walked away". Every single day (even now I'm kicking myself)...

Short? Yes. To the point? Let's say this... A master smith in Japan folding the steel of a katana ten thousand times, curving the blade just perfectly, and sharpening it to the point it could cut the fabric of the Universe Herself could not have made a finer point than this poem.

Keep writing, we need more writers like you in New York. Could you check out some of my poems? It would be great if you could also give a review. Thanks!

Lovely write .

we regret not doing many things in life..

Wow, a two-hour love-story in eleven well-descriptive lines. Imagination plays along with a story, but the lines in this one guides creative imagination to the max! In my imagination, the story ended in a mutual understanding and happines. Liked it. (Know you wrote this five months ago!)

I like it. I always like things that are to the point.

It leaves questions, which I like.

Excellent job.
