i regret not getting in the car and driving to your house at 3 am.
i regret being “too tired” to actually read that text when my phone buzzed at 2:48 am november 9th, 2009.
i regret not being there like i promised i’d always be.
i regret not being the best friend you deserved.
i regret not stopping you from swallowing two bottles of tylenol and a liter of vodka.
i regret not saving you.
i regret not having the strength to delete that text from my phone.
