The Pain - Poem by Kristen Otto

I feel like jumping out of my skin
i feel like your mad

and i can understand why
Cant catch my breath

hearts pumping overtime
waiting for you to show up

couldnt you at least have the dignity to show up?
I thought you were fine

i said i was sorry
and i never would want to do that again

but everyone makes mistakes
i'll never ever do this again

i want to promise you this

but i'm not perfect
and i cant help it if i do again

but i really dont want to
please forgive me

    Very intense poem! It has such a honest and sincere tone, it almost makes the reader say 'I forgive you' in the end, only to mke you feel better!
    A very good piece of work!
