I’m Sorry

I’m sorry.
I wasn’t lying.
I wasn’t.
You were the only person to whom I told the truth.
The only one I trusted.
I told no one else,
And so you thought I’d lied.
To you.
Lied to you – how could I?
You wore your disappointment on your face.
Why didn’t I explain?
Or apologise?
So many times I almost did,
Words on the tip of my tongue.
But the moment was never right.
The scar not ready to be poked.
I thought there would be more time.
I was wrong.
You’re gone,
I’m sorry.


Today’s prompt is to write a poem which makes an apology you’ve always regretted not making.

    A great heartfelt poem Pooky. I feel that. And I was struggling with why an apology might be necessary considering you told the truth, but then I thought perhaps the apology is due for all the other untruths around it, that confused the true words you spoke to the other person.

      This was the same conclusion my husband and I came to with regards to having children. If we waited for the right time, we’d still be waiting now. They start school in the autumn 😉
