Poetry Prompt 31 – Apology

write a poem which makes an apology you’ve always regretted not making

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

You might like to consider:

  • What do you wish to apologise for?
  • Who are you apologising to?
  • Why did you not apologise at the time?
  • Why have you not apologised since?
  • Do you think your lack of apology was noted?
  • How did the situation, for which you never apologised, impact on you or others?

Happy reading, happy writing -and if you do write, don’t forget to post your poem (in full or as a link) in the comments below so we can all enjoy it.

    I did mine but I gotta say. It’s one of the hardest short posts I ever wrote.

        😀 I miss you too Pooky, our brief meeting meant so much to me. We could have talked all night I’m sure. I just need a decent job over there and I can split my spare time between you and my sister. She’d like that too 😉

    I’m so sorry *sob, sob*
    That I made a bad job,
    Of keeping up with every prompt,
    But when I was there,
    You must, to be fair,
    Admit that I rocked and I romped!

  6. So this isn’t an apology from me, but it is one that I think most men in a relationship with a woman will have to make at least once.
