Unspoken Apologies, or Things She Won’t Say

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. 

I’m sorry.
