"This is just to say..."

 

This is just to say…

I was wrong

I hurt you

I hurt myself

I was lost, and didn’t bother asking for directions

I was hopeless, and didn’t ask for help

I needed you, yet I left you in the darkness

This is just to say…

I was confused

I didn’t know the answer

I was trapped

Stuck in a hole, that I couldn’t climb out of

This is just to say…

I was scared

Scared to talk to you

Scared to tell you

Scared to know your reaction

Scared to hurt you

This is just to say…

I was angry

I was upset

But I wasn’t justified

I was in the wrong

This is just to say…

I hurt you more, from hiding

I hurt you more, from lying

I hurt you more, from pretending

This is just to say…

I still don’t know the answer

That I’m still confused

Still scared

Still angry

Still upset

This is just to say…

I’m finding my way

Because of you…

This is just to say…

I’m sorry

This is just to say…

Thank you

 

The End
