I’m sorry for thinking you would always be around
Taking for granted the sound of your heartbeat
And how it always calmed me down
I’m sorry for not listening to your needs
You were loud and clear
and I couldn’t see
How easy it was to love you
I’m sorry for tripping over my feelings every time you went away
Carving a path of destruction
with every new name
I’m sorry I couldn’t see how much I deserved
Or that you were willing to place it gently
In my hands, my heart, or at my feet.
All I had to do was accept it.
Instead, I simply took it.
Like it had been mine all along.
You didn’t deserve the wreckage I caused.
