[Poetry] Another Argument, Another Regret

Another argument, another fight,
Another regret buried deep inside.
I face you each day with a defiant stare,
Yet every night, I muffle my cries.

More harsh words meant only to hurt,
I purposely do what I know you hate.
I face you each day without a care in the world,
Yet every night, I return to my broken state.

One day, for sure, the pain will fade,
I promise you, I will treat you right,
But for now all I can do is whisper “I’m sorry”,
As you sleep on through the night.

  1. But for now all I can do is whisper “I’m sorry”,
    As you sleep on through the night.

    Ahh what for is that sorry if you have already caused pain?…(lol) just thinking out loud…so many people are bound to destroy and hurt us and all they can do is be sorry after…

    • Hmm…I believe there are some people who are only meant to be in our lives to hurt us and to show us we can survive the pain…and I believe there are some people who we are meant to hurt so we can learn about ourselves and be better.

      Thank you for reading and providing such insightful comment!

  2. a contrite and forgiving heart comes through the words. this could also read as an apology to one’s self for being so hard and tough on themselves, you poems are so multi dimensional dear Jade.
