Retracing Your Steps – Written Friday 14th May 2021 (Aged 46)

Retracing Your Steps

you cannot go back –
the way you came
and –
you cannot –
retrace your steps
from –
the way you came
you cannot make –
your way –
back along the cliff
and coastal path
and there is no clear picture
in the emotions and feelings
you drink –
till you are completely drunk
you cannot go back –
the way you came
it is a one way street
and memory lane
quickly forgets your feet
you cannot go back –
the way you came
you cannot retrace your steps
no reason exists,
to hang onto lamentable regrets
