Regret - a FEAR poem sequel
(A sequel to "Innocence")
Alma was my greatest regret,
My heart would ache when our eyes met.
My little girl to whom I would never smile,
I treated her so horribly, all the while.
My 'Project Origin' started it all

Instead I found a billboard of butterflies,
the colors raging
