The Final Time

The Final Time

A Poem by ℰmerald ⚓
"

regretting your past

"
It was me all along.
Forgive me for my wrongs.
If you show me what's right,
I won't make this mistake again.

It doesn't matter what you say,
It's not okay...
I screwed this one up,
It was all my fault.

I couldn't control it..
I take full responsibility,
I take all the guilt,
I almost took my life...

Sorry didn't cut it,
I don't know why I did that.
You weren't much better...
This is how we prove,
It was just another love story.

Emerald,

This poem of yours speaks loudly to all of us. At some level, we've all been wrrong. But it takes a mature person to admit wrong, express regret and resolve to amend their life. Nice job.

I especially like the line: "If you show me what's right, I won't make this mistake again." So often people are willing to point out someone else's wrong doing but not show them what's right. This is great writing.

Also, I like the line: "This is how we prove, It was just another love story." It is important that love be part of the formula for confession, acceptance and forgiveness. Without love, it's all pretense. I love your sensitivity of purpose.

Great presentation of a great poem.

Thank you for sharing your poem with us.

A friend of mine says that to state it over and over is where the term overstated comes from... just a thought. Well done.

Alright..
Was short and delivered a punch. The flow was good, the ending had a slight twist to it which was much appreciated ..Love is one fucked up game but it's one i'd try and participate in even though I might be destined to fail. Great write.

yeah, thank you.
I felt suicidal at a stage of life and so was my wife before we met. What changed everything was the love we found. As the saying goes permanent solution to a temporary problem.

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..
