Remorse

I am sorry
Not for not listening to you
But for succumbing to your plea
When deep within perhaps I sensed
Where this road would lead

I am sorry
I got caught up in the emotion
And called it devotion
Caught in between
Truth and a dream

I am sorry
You are here in deep folly
All is not my fault
But I am sorry
for my part
Of your fractured heart

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

    You make some good points here, Mary. Sometimes our place in someone else’s decisions is not as complicit as they might imply.

    Confessional poems are hard to write but such catharsis!

  8. Mary,
    It takes two to make a relationship work. Like bending reeds – but strong together.

    This poem reflects zactly (that’s right- ZACTLY) how I feel at some point each and every day In my life now. You have struck some chords of universality. Sorry can be mia culpa, it can also be plain empathetic sorrow for the mutual vicissitudes. Beautiful and tender
