Priceless Occasion

by BrokenREALiTy

Why do people regret so much,
The relationship that ended in sorrow?
Why feel remorse for what was lost,
And look ahead to a broken tomorrow?

How can you feel sadness to such a memory,
That once made you smile like no other?
How do you hate someone you once loved,
When you promised them forever?

Who's to say that all happiness is lost,
Just because someone hurt you deep?
Who says you have to throw away the memories,
That you were clearly meant to keep?

When you were happy with that person;
If you were free and far from chained down,
Why would you even think to loathe them,
Simply because they're no longer around?

So when you think back to the painful recollections,
Don't cry or scream because they're merely memories.
Smile gratefully for the priceless chance you got,
To live out some of life's greatest fantasies.

I've also read this one before :P Seriously, I love your work. I never find your rhymes forced. You are brilliant. I think that this poem hits me deeply because I felt the same way about my ex. I wanted to hate him SO badly, but then just like the poem says...how could you? You shared so many moments and if you loved them, how could you not even want to remember that? I honestly think it's flawless.
5/5

A very inspiring peice.
You portrayed your message quite clearly.
As other's said above, I love how you put the question's in the begining then tied them all up in the end.

You started and finished this poem, perfectly.:)
Well done,
5/5 Elly.

WOW. This is for sure going into my favorites. The emotions the imagery everything about it was mind blowing. The loved the last stanza, it was an amazing way to tie the poem intogether. I do think you kinda lost the flow in the second to last stanza but the ending was so intriguing that it didn't matter. Well done *5/5*

Very inspirational and true.Some parts,it seemed as if you wrote a sentance a certain way just to get it to rhyme,but oddly it didn't upset the flow of the poem.Great piece.A 5/5 from me.
Keep writing,
Miranda
