Sorry

I’m sorry I’m mean 
I’m sorry I’m rude 
I’m sorry I’m me 
I’m sorry you’re you 
I’m sorry you can’t see
Beyond my past 
For those are the things
That will never last   

I’m sorry I’m annoying
I’m sorry you take offense
I’m sorry for all my faults
I’m not sorry for who I am
I’m sorry you never see
That I’m not just all that
I’m much more than
One trick, one bunny, one hat   

I’m sorry I’m not good enough
I’m sorry I’m not perfection
I’m sorry I’ll never be her
I’m sorry you can’t see more
I’m sorry you only see
The darkness in the light
I’m sorry a thousand times
For putting up a fight   

But I’ll never be perfection
Although I shall try
I’ll never be who you want
Try as I might
So for one last afterthought
Once I leave forever
Just one last I’m sorry
For everything I’m never

Richard D. Cooper: I wish I could write poetry like this. It's clever because it also tells a story, too. I like the flow of it, the way sentences slip together as they should. Very good indeed.

Alexander Skel: I fell in love with this piece right off the second line and I only continued to enjoy it. I admittedly don't read a lot of poetry or romance stories, but I do often think that many people don't fall in love for a person, a least not at first, but rather the person they create in their mind.
