These Drops of Sweet Sorry

Published by

If you listen…..
Just a little closer
And if you would stay…..
Just a moment longer
You might be able to hear
These drops of regret
Fall into the bucket
And you might be able to see
These drops of sweet “sorry”
Filling up the bottle

I told myself this is
No fault of my own
And blamed it on your fear
Of being alone

But if I bring you…..
Just a little closer
And if I could hold you…..
Just a moment longer
I might be able to take back
Those drops of regret
And empty that bucket
And I might be able to soak up
Those drops of sweet “sorry”
And break open that bottle

We made this fairy tale
Into a very short story
You deserved a much better ending
And for this…..
I’m very very sorry..

  4. I’ve recently gone through some bad times with
    an exboyfriend/best friend. He meant everything to
    me and i would have done anything for him.
    This poem was an awesome way to just let him
    know that Im sorry for everything that has happened.
    Regardless of whether he sayssorryfor things he has
    put me though is a different story, and to be honest i
    cannot ever imagine him saying sorry…. but, as long
    as I’ve that’s all that matters to me. Brillant poem and
    suits my situation down to a tea. Hats of to the person who
    actually let their feelings be known

  17. Dear Jones,
    This poem is one of the most amazing poems i
    have ever read. its filled with so much compassion
    that i was very moved by it. I too write poetry, I
    don't have to ask how you could write something
    so heart felt, like me, it came from your heart. I
    want to say that ” if ” you wrote this poem for
    someone that you truly love, then i hope that your
    feelings for them where very much seen in the
    way you made it clear in this poem. I can say to,
    that you have an amazing gift and i think you
    should give it to the world and keep writting. Write
    about all the things that you feel deep inside your
    heart, about the things you see in this world.
    Example: When you see things that can stir up
    your emotions inside, like something as beautiful
    as a snow covered mountain, or the warm spring
    sun shinning on a feild of flowers where wild
    bunnies play, and seeing it stirs up something
    from inside your heart, then, my friend, you are
    a born writer and you should open your heart to
    the world. As i read alot of the comments to your
    poem, it touched alot of people, which makes that
    a remarkable ability. give it to the world! Goodluck.

  18. i really like this poem. I love the ending where you state that this is not how the story was suppose to end! Hopefully your story has continued and the person was able to forgive you
