Barely Surviving


I'm sorry I let you read me
I'm sorry I read you
I'm sorry I let you manipulate me
I'm sorry I manipulated you
I'm sorry I let you meet up with me
I'm sorry I met up with you
I'm sorry I let you kiss me
I'm sorry I kissed you
I'm sorry I let you touch me
I'm sorry I touched you
I'm sorry I got you attracted
I'm sorry I got attracted
I'm sorry I fell for you
I'm sorry you never felt the same way
I'm sorry for the first time
I'm sorry for my disintegrated conscience
I'm sorry for not letting go
I'm sorry for being mentally ill
I'm sorry for wasting everyone's time
I'm sorry for ever existing
I'm sorry for being sexually abused
I'm sorry for my religion
I'm sorry for not being capable of being loved
I'm sorry for being alive
I'm so sorry
but I will fix all of this...

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
