A Poem by Crystal Elisa

Is that an apology

echoing from your lips

faintly resonating

hardly recognizable

small step towards growth

towards closure

a question... one which perhaps begs a more upfront approach, a more direct sincerity.

"small step towards growth
towards closure"

I like the repeat here, as if they are steps in a walk, one foot before the other, approaching something better. But behind every line you can feel the stiffnecked pride in the one who cannot muster the courage to truly accept responsibility for their wrong and apologize for it. You can feel them squirm beneath their own conscience. Nice write!

apologies come so hard for some people..i wonder why...

it causes fissures in relationships when we are unable to say we are sorry...the hurt just gets prolonged and gets deeper.

This poem delivers a lot in a very tight package.

It expresses surprise and it asks for more

A great little gem of a poem. It leaves me with the feeling that the listener is stunned the person has grown enough to admit their flaws and thus, their humanity. Good write!
