Though time

and time again

I have tried

Sorrow remains

as ever

by my side

I want to bury regrets,

Shame and memories too

I need to get rid of every last trace

of you


So I’m digging

deep holes


in the back yard

Even though this soil

is proving to be quite hard

I will persevere,

I will follow through

I’ll dig straight on to hell if I have to

    Yeah. I can relate. Trying to balance the need to do… that work… SOMETHING with the realization of the pointlessness. Holes eventually fill in. Do what you gotta do.
    Nice writing.
