Regret

‘Black and White’ – yamabuki

I drink to our ruined house,
to all of life’s evils too,
to our mutual loneliness,
and I, I drink to you –
to eyes, dead and cold,
to lips, lying and treacherous,
to the age, coarse, and cruel,
to the fact that God has not saved us.
— Anna Akhmatova

Silencio 
Stands still
Tears
From 
His eyes 
Spill
Whiteness 
Of Death
Leaving only 
Regret
