I Should Have

I Should Have

A sadness that gently vibrates through my bones
An echo without an originating voice
Just a fading refrain repeating itself
Faint yet insistent
Restless in the hollow spaces deep inside my body

The feeling is transparent
Journeying lightly through my veins
It is neither heavy nor startling
Rather, it slowly fills me
As light as air

A ghost
A cloud
A plume of smoke

It is a whisper within me
I should have

But I didn’t.
