Magic Dust - Poem by Noemi Lee

You use 'I'm Sorry'
as if it were magic dust.

Talk to me again dust
Let me in the house dust
Let me in your heart dust
Let me in your pants dust

I'm sorry, sincere or not,
makes everything better.
What a grand product.

You aren't even
completely sure
what it is youre
sorry for.

You just know
it works
like magic.

And you become confused
when you find that
'I'm sorry.'
is not enough.

The magic dust is not invicible.

    Noemi, magic dust... great metaphor. I've tried it, it does work... but the magic wears off after a while. Excellent write! !
