When I Look Back - Poem by Daved Tril

I never realised that words could attack,
Now i've realised your pain and hurt,
When i look back,

I can't explain or for the life of me remember why,
but for the life of her,
why did she have to go and die,
see her fly

never to see her face again
all i remember of when i look back then,
a mother, my hope, my guide, my friend

it's not as if i've forgotten what i did to you,
the things i expressed and the things i wrote down about you,
i wish i could take it back, and shine the sun when i look back,
i never realised words could attack,

i felt like glass back then,
because you were looking right though me,
no longer smiling, but crying,
and dying inside,
helping to destroy your piece of mind,
when i'm just broken and finally leaving you behind,

i wish i could forget this and shine the light when i look back,
i never realised words could attack.
