RoseAnn V. Shawiak
Ruins Of Regret
Ruins of regret sift themselves in untimely rest,
offering misspent hopes and dreams, dying beneath
a capsized boat.
All of life is mesmerized by the complaining lull
brought on by strife.
Outlasting everything that is unimportant, reality
rows off shore and quietly watches swimmers
negligently drowning under huge waves swallowing
Tempting lips of fate, intense desire purloining
the coasts of unswept lust.
Pressed beneath the weight, softly prodded, relent-
lessly forcing itself upon the shortened skirts of
