Sorry - Poem by Emily K. Courtney

I am sorry
For chasing you
With such vigor
Intentionally trying to drench you with
What my adolescent mind
Saw as untainted affection
Just so happened to be
64oz. of water

I seriously apologize
For cheating off of you
Through most of 6th grade
And for the test I desperately
More so for the fact that I still have it

I regret
Writing that song for you
And never playing it

Will you ever forgive me
When I was 7yr. old
I told my mom
I was going to marry you
But sadly
I couldn’t find the
Courage to talk to you
In high school

The time I took your picture
From behind a tree
After yelling your name so you wouldn’t see me
Too far away
Too blurry
Yeah I am sorry for that too
That is my most prized possession

I am sorry you are reading this
If you are

In regards to you 16th birthday
Sorry you didn’t call me back
As to arrange a time to that I could give you your gift
And hang out
More so
That I still have the 14k ruby earrings
That was purchased with a 16 year-old’s

I am sorry that I hold all women
Up to the standard of perfection
That you inadvertently
Effortlessly set

I am sorry you never saw any of this
And that I never told you till now
And sorry that has taken me this long
To realize I have but one regret
In this life
