“I’m Sorry” Poem

I’m Sorry

By Ashley O’Hare

I’m sorry.

I’m sorry my head is a mess

and my tears have stained the floor,

but I hope you’ll settle for less

because I can’t be alone anymore.

I’m sorry my heart doesn’t beat as fast

and I keep checking over my shoulder,

but I’m scared from when I was here last

because back then I missed the signs of the crushing boulder.

I’m sorry I don’t smile as much

and I’ve lost interest in my hobbies,

but I hope you can still be my crutch

because otherwise I will be stuck in the lobby.

I’m sorry.

I’m trying.

I’m sorry.
