Sometimes, He Wishes

Sometimes, he wishes he
could live life in the pluperfect,
but his life is imperfect
so he keeps bringing the past
into the present with
all its accompanying pain.
If he could live life in the pluperfect,
he could say that he had left
the past in the past along with the pain
even though life still would not be
present perfect because he has not
learned to put the pain completely
in the past. Oh, what a shame.
