A Second Chance

Published by at 8:58 am under Sorry Love Poems

I slighted and betrayed you
Crumbling our foundation of trust
I ruined what we had, grinding it to dust
Everything is different now,never to be the same
Its an unbearable loss to deal with
Filled with guilt, depression and shame
I recal how we used to laugh everyday
A simple contentment
In anything we’d do or say
But I destroyed all that, in time
with arrogance as my top crime
and now I face a life sentence.

I seek your friendship, undeserved, I know
and doubt that you even remember me nor care
but I’ll keep faith, and not let hope go
On the offchance that forgiveness, and need
Can transcend such a old, and unfair, misdeed.

    Well, I forgive ya!

    Though I know not what misdeed you speak of,
    I hope whomever this is intended for does as well.

    A beautiful poem, from the cockles.

    I didn’t think you’d ever write another poem.
    I really do like this. Very much. And I think you’ve actually improved from your last poem, as impossible as that may seem.
    Good job.

    Scratch that. Poem has no meaning anymore. The person has proven unworthy of it and utterly absurd. fml.

    I focused on the poem Grass by Carl Sandburg. This is one of my fvaroite poems. My reaction is always solemnity, thinking about the dead in those battlefields, decaying under the grass, wondering what’s next. I find it appealing for many reasons, the first being the element of surprise that the content-title relationship brings. From the title Grass , one would never guess that the poem talks about bodies in various battle cemetaries across the world, and grasses role regarding the decomposition of the bodies. I am grass let me work .Another aspect of this poem that I find appealing is the us of figurative language. For example, portraying the dead as confused passengers asking their conductor, God, what is next in their journey.I also enjoy that fact that the poem is concise and to the point, while still making you feel profound emotions if you allow it.
