I'm sorry

I'm sorry

A Poem by ℰmerald ⚓

Your head held high,
With expectations.
It never crossed your mind.
No hesitation.

I was a disappointment to you,
Many others.
There's something you all never knew,
Only once shall I speak as the old crow withers.

Do you remember that day?
Back in spring.
Our differences met halfway,
Your love in my ring.

I never knew your promise would last,
Softly I say.
My apologies have passed.
But still for you at night I pray.

I took it before myself,
Now I agree.
Find it in yourself,
It should've been me.

My life,
Your knife.

I don't post as much as I used to, I'll trash most of the songs I write because I always compare them to my favorite bands' music and it just never seems good enough. I don't think my poems and stori.. more..
