I am Sorry

To you , you, and you

what I said

and what I did

were poles apart

two sides of a fake coin

when I hugged you

I seemed to squeeze the life out of you

when I said I loved you

then I did stuff that

was anything but loving

the veiled mistrust

the disrespect

the subtle callousness

ask me now

I’ll tell you how

true to myself? maybe

true to you? no

Out to steal your shine

so you can deal with

the pale, dull, sad, poor me

I am sorry

for taking you for granted, for being a hoax

for the deception, disrespect, mistrust

and yes, I should have been gentler with your heart

I ask for your forgiveness
