Warranted Infidelity


Predawn slumber interrupted, I lie still as Regret sleeps peacefully. I can't get Hope off of my mind. If Regret only knew that Hope has taken up residence in my heart. Regret was a lot like Hope in the beginning, we even thought of procreating and giving birth to Future; that has all changed. What could be breezes cause make a choice branches to tap against the He can't come out windows double insulated by Regret to ensure that I never come across Hope. I wasn't looking for Hope, Hope found me. Hope sensed that I had Regret in my life. Without arrogance or conceit Hope felt that I deserved to have Hope in my life. So I've been cheating on Regret with Hope. Hope makes me smile, Hope supports me, Hope encourages me and most importantly Hope knows God. Hope has taken me to places that Regret and I can never go. The sky is the limit with Hope. I'm falling in love with Hope. For some odd reason, since I met Hope a lot of my old friends are resurfacing. Strength, Confidence, Joy, my old friend Self got married and now goes by Self-Esteem. They admitted that they stopped hanging with me because I had Regret in my life. They like Hope and agree that I need to keep Hope in my life and cut off Regret completely. So I lie here next to Regret thinking about Hope. But today is the day. When Regret awakens Regret has got to go.Strength, Confidence, Self-Esteem and I are going to breakfast, then we're going to meet Joy and Hope at church…which is where Hope found me in the first place.

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
