I am sorry for the sorrow you feel and the way that I hurt you deep.
I am sorry for being who I am instead of who you wanted me to be.
I am sorry for calling you royalty and then taking your crown.
I am sorry for making you feel good then letting you down.
I am sorry for exposing my core, before exposing my distance.
I am sorry that for the rest of your life, you will exude some resistance
because of me.
I am very sorry that I deferred your dreams, took your hope away.
I am sorry that I brightened your eyes and then lead you astray.
I am sorry that you feel the brunt of my flaws
and blame yourself because I did not stay.
I am sorry that I have had to turn my back although
you look for my face and voice every day.
I am sorry that I told you that I would give you the Universe,
without first telling you that I was incapable of putting you first.
I am sorry that you have to live with wanting me to be your Knight.
I am sorry that you were ready to box for me when I had fixed the fight.
I sincerely apologize for confirming the fears that you had all along.
I am sorry for erupting the melodies within you, of blues songs.
Whether you forgive me or not is left up to you to decide.
I will remain unaffected by what you feel and experience on the inside.
Hopefully, you forgive me, for you more than for me.
