Apologies

Apologies

A Poem by WillaDanvers
"

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to hurt you.

"
I'm a little out of my comfort zone, forgive me, 
Unsure of the boundaries you've set for me, 
Wanting to say things but afraid of your reaction, 
Have I gone too far again?

You've not had an easy life, but that's no excuse, 
My father lived the same but here he stands, 
We only want to provide help and love, please understand, 
Nothing more than family, we don't want to control, 

Knowing things that we do, perhaps the others don't,
Trying to protect, but inevitable, we all make mistakes, 
We all love and we all hurt, I'm trying to minimalize, 
You don't deserve to break, it's not fun that's all,

You trusted me, and I'm afraid I've broken it,
My mind got scared, and I had to tell a living soul,
I know you might hate me, and never forgive, 
Just please know that twas with only pure intention, 

I'll always be waiting here, if ever another chance, 
I don't expect, but hope is something we always have,
Something so small, now something of medium turmoil, 
I'm sorry, I shouldn't allow myself to care so much, 

Just one more thing, and then I'll be done, 
I am sorry for the hurt I have caused you, and the pain, 
Unknowingly, I snapped the thread because I was scared, 
And for that, I apologize with all my love.

Author's Note

WillaDanvers
Sometimes we act out of fear, and love, and we wreck the relationships we have with people. That doesn't mean we were wrong to act, it just means we could have taken another route. I'm sorry.

A lot of things are done with good intentions that can backfire. On reflection it is easy to say it could have been done a different way. When I read your poem, my grandson came to mind. It's always good to say sorry if you think you have hurt someone. I enjoyed reading your work.

It never hurts you to say sorry; and it can help the other party feel at easy. The best way to start.. read more

You are welcome. A sorry goes a long way towards repair work.

Being human is our flaw, but sorry can slowly start
to mend a broken heart or friendship or even love. It is a start to take, nothing to lose.

I like how you tell a story throughout the poem, especially to the theme of heartbreak and within each stanza you address a specific part of the relationship. The abundance of punctuation throughout the poem helps slow it down since it is a longer poem with thick lines. I also love the last line of the last stanza.

Thank you for your kind words!
I relate to this so much. I think you did a great job capturing the emotions and thought processes that go on when you're scared of love.
