Too Long in Pursuit

In hindsight’s light, reviewing my moral dilemma
sadly, badly behavin’
with my rival, center stage
beyond arm’s reach, flooded with history
not of this world, mistaken, misled
*
Valued in neither time nor place
flaunting lack of knowledge, denying circumstance
failing the memory-test
leaving me cautiously voiceless
with dismissal of foregone conclusions
impacting impossibility’s delight
