Regret? ~ A 100-word essay
She had regrets. Sure she did. Most people of a certain age have regrets. Oh, she never hurt anyone. She didn’t lie, cheat, or steal. She paid her bills on time, and only took a penny at the store when she really needed it, leaving a penny when she could. The regrets were still there. They haunted her. Especially at night. In the dark, when the world was so quiet, her brain attacked her. That smartass brain started it all, but the heart was always hurt the most. Her heart was broken. Her regret? She had not used it.

The essay above came from a dream. I woke up one morning after dreaming of someone that I hadn't thought of in a long time. They were special to me, but we were at different junctures in our lives. It wasn't meant to be. The age difference was just too great. That being said, I believe everything happens for a reason. That reason? He needed to experience the world that I had already experienced. I would have just held him back. I hear he's doing great and that makes me so happy. I just wish I'd stop dreaming about him!
