Scarlet’s Letter


Not a victim

When she cries

Scarlet dripping

From her eyes 


Alone at last

She’s missed her chance

Pleads to change the past

But can’t   

Rush into fault

Yet hesitate

When grace appears

Sealed screams fate  


Learns her lesson

Tries once again

But she’ll never know

What could’ve been  


Alone alone alone

She rests

Deflated by

Her own regrets

    I like the rhythm and rhyme of this, but am confused by stanza 3.
    This is an unusual take on lost love. We all end up with some "regrets" in life. Try not to be sad. - Phil A.

      Thanks! Stanza three is about running into the arms of other lovers, and when it seems like I have the chance at real love, my choices have already sealed my fate for me. Who could love an insatiable woman?
