I Am So Sorry:

I Am So Sorry:

I was better for a while,dear.

the ghosts in my chest
were put to rest,

the demons were quiet.

I could hear more than the roar
of my undoing

I had room to think
and step away from the brink,

to turn from the edge
and find solid ground.

But it couldn’t last,dear.
and I’m sorry.

For a brief, fleeting moment
you had more than my poetry –

you could finally recognize me
amidst the wreckage

only to watch as I folded myself
back into the disarray

I could not stay

and I am sorry,dear.
I am so, so sorry.
