what might have been lost
oh, that which is lost
what it all might have cost
what it's already cost
is nothing
was nothing
is every thing

The cost - worth it? Sometimes, even the what might have beens may be worth the cost. "This better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all." Or is it?

Ah yes, the ever-present rhetorical question...

I think the point for me when I wrote this, the focus, is on the grappling with the tension of the question, the nature of those dilemmas that equate to "damned if you do, damned if you don't."

Whether it is better to have loved or not takes on new significance in light of inevitable damnation, eh?

Thanks for the comment Karen.
