Deathbed regrets

Standard

At deathbed, he rehashed all the runs he had made to reify his dreams.

 

Those sprints that gifted him stars and soundness…

…the spurts of love…

… and, those beats he had taken ignoring her broken heart…

 

Asudden, his titles became insignificant.

    Regret is such a sad way to go. Yet, you make it sound so beautiful: “Those sprints that gifted him stars and soundness…/…the spurts of love…/… and, those beats he had taken ignoring her broken heart…” Gorgeous, Mridubala.

  2. “reify” is new to me too! You’ve been a great teacher with this one! And “ignoring her broken heart” just breaks my heart, too 😦 I like how the very rhythm of your words is like dying breaths.
