Day 13 ~ Beyond My Control

I regret

I stole your heart

As children steal a secret sweet

Or pluck an apple as they pass

It was not in my control

I regret

A look, a word

I saw you fall

I did nothing then to aid you

It was not in my control

I regret

I watched your sad attempts to woo

Accepted kisses

Never turned you quite away

It was not in my control

I regret

I let you think

That I might love you

In return for loving so

Now I regret

Freeing you from my control

(inspired by Le Liaisons Dangereuses)
