Flash Friday 55: Down the Drain


I wish I could wash
you out,
forget it
finally
Not be haunted by
what-ifs
regrets
you would go
down
the 
drain, 
in
a gentle trickle,
like the soap suds
puddled at my feet

Because moments
sneak up on my resolve
hushly whispering
to my heart
if only...
reminding me
of what was
long-ago lost.


It's Flash Friday 55.  Head over to g-man and put your link in the comments if you want to join us.

Yes, it would be wonderful when you were done with grieving the loss of someone or something that you could just wash it down the drain...great images created with this 55!

The "what ifs" and "should have beens" need to be washed out of all our lives! Great one, Tina!

Perfect, relate-able. That being said, there will always be those haunting moments...even decades from now. It's a woman thing.

The if onlys and what ifs keep us on the edge of the possibilities

Beautiful poetry
