The Hermit

The Hermit

A Poem by Schyala

My second poem about the hermit, a tarot card representing regrets. Hope you enjoy!

Piled up in a hoarder's house.
Like heirlooms, passed down from our thoughts.
What we might of thought as intelligent
to leave our harlot mouths
turns into fears of the past

We can remember all do,
and wonder what we could have done
As our eyes look down upon us
And although light sets ahead 
Happiness is in the quest
Our regrets will always follow us
And always remain our pest.

i hate regrets. your poem makes regrets sound like something we can defeat. like it.

This is an excellent poem. It suits the subject matter well I think. I like how you described what regrets are in the first few lines. Those are some cleverly weaved words. You shed a good deal of insight into regret with this piece. I wonder perhaps, if you could do something for each Tarot card. That would be a challenge I would think someone with this level of insight would defeat in a most rewarding manner.

Yes, I did enjoy this.

Be well.
