Poet Mahik’s shares her deep, emotive, heartfelt poem, “Wretched Yet No Regret.”

A lonesome horror to live in
“Crap” soup to eat
Spooky stuff to play with
and no soul to speak

far from town
not a single bird chirps
Paths on roads
Have cracks and jerks

Blinks the light
And dooms the sun
Curse-like plight
And there’s nothing I have done

No way out
I’m stuck in such a dream
Where fairy tales too
End in screams

Once, my sorrow
Struck my mind
And then I
Began to write

A spooky spunky poem
Written in atrocious tears
And as you read the tone
All seems so queer

But if it never would’ve betided
I won’t have this legend
For me to write and you to read
The dirt of this gem!
