My Apologies

Folder: 
Remnants

I've not always been the best man that I could be
I know I've said things that I didn't mean
I know I've done things that I can't believe
And you know that's just the fear seething out of me


So now, I'm sorry, for leaving
When you needed me to stay
And I'm sorry, for believing
It was better off that way


I never meant to be this way
I never meant to run away


I always run when things get heavy
It's just not right
I know how the pain can feel deadly
It's not alright


I never meant to be this way
I never meant to run away


I should've been there for you
Instead of chasing memories
There's so much I should have done
Instead I clung to misery


And I am sorry, for thinking
You and I weren't meant to be
I'm sorry, for comparing
You to things that make me leave


So now, you just need to say
One thing, that you want me to stay
Take me back, let me cleanse the mistakes
And I promise now, I will never run away


This is my apology
For what I never meant to be

Without a doubt, These tender

Without a doubt,

These tender words

Have touched a gift of healing to my wounds,

And breathed such loving sounds

Bringing light to what I'd thought was doomed,

A truer heart I've never felt,

You've swept me off my feet,

With this apology you've shared,

I can see now,

You are so, so sweet.

 

Just a really heartfelt apology. It takes a real person to admit their wrongs. Awesome.


...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

Thank you

I'm happy you enjoyed it. Mistakes are made to be learned from, but lessons can't be learned without accepting and admitting the mistakes were made.


You're poetic response...incredible
If this was a true story, I'd hope for a similar response

Thank you

For such an uplifting comment.
But, I must share a truth. This, like a majority of my work, was a random inspiration from something else.
This one was inspired by the show Burn Notice. Mike's apology to Fiona.

Not exactly

Random inspiration, as usual
I rarely go for round two
