Tiny

Filed under: poetry — denisedayspencer @ 7:01 pm

It was a small thing he asked of me,

a thing that would have cost so little.

But small things are easily forgotten,

ignored,

set neatly aside for another day.

For there will always be another day —

until there isn’t.

So now I carry one, tiny regret

like a millstone dangling from my heart.
