NaPoWriMo Day 12. Things I Will Never Say (but probably should)

Today’s prompt was, “I challenge you to “write a poem consisting entirely of things you’d like to say, but never would, to a parent, lover, sibling, child, teacher, roommate, best friend, mayor, president, corporate CEO, etc.” Honesty is the best policy, after all, so get it off your chest!

Dear past loves,

I’m sorry.
I lied.
I cheated.
I was selfish.
I’m not sorry.
I called the cops.
I left.
I changed.

I’m sorry.
I was needy.
I was emotional.
I let you string me along..
I’m not sorry.
You broke up with me.
I was heartbroken.
I healed.

I’m sorry.
I broke your heart.
I was broken
And didn’t know.
I’m not sorry.
I really thought I loved you.
I realized it wouldn’t work.
Then said goodbye.

I’m sorry.
I used you.
You were the collateral damage
Of summer heartbreak.
I disappeared.
To you I’m really just sorry.

Maya Angelou says,
“When you know better,
You do better.”

I know better.
