The Said


Spoke out of turn
Said not what was on my mind
Only on the tip of my tongue
Should have taken a breath
And thought for a bit
Not the first time
That unthought became spoken
Wish I could have unsaid the said
Unthink the unthinkable
But the unthought became the word
And the word could not be unsaid
The sorry that followed
Could not take back the hurt
Hurt of the most unkind
Not the untruth
Just the not totally true
But the unkind became the said
Regret that followed
Could not be sorried away
