All You Ever Say///I’m Sorry


 

 

“Stop”

I whisper as you say

“We need to talk”

As if we hadn’t been talking

For the last 17 months.

 

“Don’t do this”

I say as I hold back tears

Because you just

“Haven’t been happy”.

 

“What did I do”

I ask myself

Every single night

As if I caused this.

 

“I’m sorry”

Is all you ever say

As if two words

Can make the pain go away.

 

As if those words

Were Bandaids

For every cut

That I made.

 

As if for a moment

You actually cared

That I will never be okay.

 

Perhaps “I’m sorry”

Will fix the pieces of me

That I’ll never

Get back.

 

Maybe those two words

Will help me

FINALLY

Be able to sleep at night.

 

You think two words

Will make me rethink suicide

After all the nasty things

You said to me.

 

Look at yourself through my eyes

Feel the pain and the tears

Then tell me if “I’m sorry”

Is enough.

 

“I’m sorry”

Is all you ever say.
