Falling Leaves

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

SarahFromHell: I like this poem, it reminds me a lot of the "river of blood" scene in Pola X. There are some phrases I don't understand: "belittled at", and "the sanctimonious and all things divine" (I tend to think of "sanctimonious" as meaning arrogantly preachy, I don't know if that was your intention?) I ...

Magoo18: The title caught my eye and I just had to read it. It's very well done and consistent through out. The Story and Wording had a terrific lyric quality that helped it to roll off the tongue while reading. While I am not sure you meant for there to be a lesson I found there was one. Life is a journe...

CalvinPeat: This is a great concept, and you've done a largely excellent job of capturing the voice of Mal.You convey Mal's inner struggle well. Perhaps, though, you could reflect the hope in verses 13-17 of Psalm 90 a bit more. A suggestion: in the current version, Mal seems to be losing hope in the idea of...

Barbara Ivusic: I really loved this poem. Perfect use of imagery to outline the digital age. I loved the image of the olive branch and how it is posted for all to see but no one can touch it. Everything you describe is so true that it has become common knowledge yet no one acknowledges it anymore. I look forward...

K.J. Silver: This was a quick read but worth it. I loved the writer's portrayal of the dual aspects of snow: good and evil, softness and ill intent, and that beauty can be deceiving. It's like the softness of a snowfall versus how harsh or dangerous an ice storm can be. I feel as though certain lines of the p...
