I'M So Sorry! - Poem by Adrienne Clark Strachn

It's all my fault
saying things I shouldn't have said
they said, you said, I said,
I shouldn't have listened
i should have left well enough alone,
but no, I couldn't stop there
I had to be reckless,
burning up the minutes on your cell phone,
putting sugar in your gas tank,
calling the police on you,
running after the car you and her were in
I just could not stop..
wanted you to feel the pain, you afflicted on me
I am so sorry now
it's all my fault, we have a family,
I ruined the chance for us to be together
a chance for us to have more children
plan for the future
now your baby has a new daddy
i'm in a new relationship
you are in jail
for life
someone else is taking your place
I'm so sorry,
he's so good to me, and loves our child
I couldn't trust you
couldn't trust your new woman
she is dangerous, just like you
my new man is good to our son
so i treat him good
he doesn't abuse me, like you did
but i am so sorry, things worked out like they did
i was jealous, you gave me reason to be.
i began to be vengeful
just sorry for the outcome for you,
and possibly me,
see you in another lifetime,
you got life, she got seven years
your cellphone was damaged,
so was your car,
but i am in a wheel
you, and your woman, knocked me down with our car
so sorry, but look
life goes on.... see you around..
and guess what,
the doctor saids
i will walk again! ...
