Small fight, big consequences...

It's always the little things that get on your nerves.
When you're least expecting it, life can throw you curves.
We had a silly argument over, what, I can't remember
and from this tiny spark ignited, like a glowing ember,
an escalation to the point that I left in a huff.
My final word still haunts me – I simply said "Enough!"

In the darkness of the night, the pain of leaving you
ripped at my heart. I knew my anger was untrue.
How could I have been so stupid to throw it all away?
I vowed that I'd apologize the very next day.

I bought you yellow daisies because they're your favorite.
I even had a speech prepared, I hate to admit.
I was focused on the words. In my mind they would repeat.
I didn't see the car as I ran into the street.

When you least expect it, events can form a chain.
Lying here the last thoughts coursing through my brain
were "Now you'll never know I'm sorry"...
                                    ... as my life flows down the drain.


Thank you for taking time to read my words.  I would appreciate it if you took a moment and left a comment.  Your reaction, impressions, criticisms, - yes, even praise *Smile* are all equally welcome.
