Robert Lee Brewer, Writer’s Digest:
For today’s prompt, write a regret poem. Most people regret some action they’ve taken over the years, whether it’s saying the wrong thing, making the wrong choice, or putting off something for a tomorrow that never comes. Write about your own regrets, or the regrets of others (this is a great opportunity to write a persona poem).
Angry, still, she would have said,
Just keep away from me!
You ruin everything you touch,
speaking out…butting in.
Let, at least, my dying be
about me, with my friends.
I only care about my own.
My death belongs to me!
