lingering conclusions

conclusions are not common
in real life
lingering admonishments,
like mid-morning moon opposing sun

a master of mistake
so good have I become
that irony
has rubbed clean off

lingering remorse
like day after
stomach flu
belly burn

a master of apology
irony lost
conclusions are like
winning lotto tickets

time does not wait
wrongs not righted
but forks in the road provide
the choice a wiser man would choose

to linger in thought
perchance this time
to go left
up that leaf covered path
where loved ones await
with open arms for now

lingering doubt should be
resolution resolved
remorse restored
to quiet confidence
and peace
of longing

Like a cobblestone bike ride - seconds of flight and moments of hard landing
