.... sorry?

.... sorry?

A Poem by Loribeth215

There's a shadow by the bed

There's a memory

making holes in your head


Are you sorry now?

Are you grateful now?


There's some miseries swimming between your fingers,

There's some breath in your body left to linger


Are you sorry now?

Do you even know how?


There's a halo in your eyes

There's a universe that burns there and dies

Are you sacred now?

Do the angels rise to defend you now?


With your final vow,

do you scream, do you pray, do you know how?


Are you sorry now?

Are you sorry now?

Like Cole Spire i seriously heard music as i read this. It reminds me of that Michelle Branch song "Are you Happy now" but wayyyyy way way better lol. This is so powerful and strong...amazing job i think this is my favorite of yours! You can feel the intensity i love it!

wow. i could almost hear music as i read this. Powerful words that are almost melodic. You did a good job. you might want to turn this into a song some day.

I write poetry and stories, but you'll see more of the former than the later, as I am trying to sell several stories to online publishers. You can see many of my stories on the following websites: .. more..
