unundone

unundone

she said that what is said
cannot be unsaid
and now that what she said
got written
it cannot be unwritten either
if that is somehow sad
it cannot be unsad
whatever can be and gets
whittled away can ever
be unwhittled back
broken mirrors do no tend
to mend themselves
and unmended they are deemed
unlucky
what is deemed unlucky cannot be
undeemed
stays unredeemed
a life undone is death
undead just isn't done
unalive is fine
