that once (6)

regret is not a thing, itself, 
it's more an absence that we miss; 
and there are days we'd forfeit all 
the lessons learned, for just one kiss, 
but not because we need it. more 
that life does not allow us back, 
and that the more we have and know 
the more we know how much

we lack
