Regret

Regret

If regret were a color
What color would it be
What range of the rainbow
Would our eyes see

If regret were clothing 
What texture would I feel
Would I find its touch
Making it more real

If regret could be molded
I wonder what it could make
What shape would it fit in
What form would it take

If regret was like money
What could it buy
Would it purchase luxury 
Or in poverty lie

If regret was a building
A place where we would live
Would it have light and hope
Or be dark and negative

Regret is such a strange thing
It is so difficult to know
If it is for our pain
Or a thing to help us grow
