A Poem

Sorry

I look at you looking at her Smiling, Talking, having a great day.

I look at you looking at her, only im kinda far away, where I can’t hear what

you say.

I've been sitting alone for awhile now trying to give you space.

It was mostly because I couldn't stand to see the sad look on your face.

Some of that was my fault and I’m sorry.

I’m sorry I let you down,

I’m sorry I spilled my thoughts and feelings to you when I weak and alone.

I look around and think that I have sinned this horrible sin and I need to atone

When in reality all I did was be me.

But it wasn't the best version I could be.

I walked around and never put my head down because I was myself,

Not bottling up my emotions and hiding them away on a shelf.

I thought I was better than that,

I thought I was stronger than that.

Sadly, her words words have messed me up

And to be honest I though the hurt they brought would never stop

But now I see that just one mistake can’t and won’t define me!

Because I am stronger than that,

And I am better than that.

I look at you looking at her...

Then suddenly, you look at me.

I find the courage to look you in the eyes and mouth my apology

I’m sorry,

I’m sorry I let you down

I’m sorry I spilled my thoughts and feelings to you when I was weak

I’m sorry for my one mistake that might never go away but now im different

I’m that better version of me

And that…

That will never change.
