It's Not Like Me I'm So Very Sorry - A Poem

Updated on November 25, 2014
Source

In our youth I loved how you adored me for all to see. I needed that - I didn't think I was pretty or worthy just as me.

But despite your goodness I held myself back. Inexperience, insecurities, a confident mind I did lack.

If I show you my soul could I bear the hurt? Should you not like what you see I'd feel like dirt.

Do I need to give up my dreams if I went your way? Instead of talking and figuring it out I just threw you away. I thought it would be easier I didn't know what to say.

It's been many, many years but I'm still riddled with guilt. I never meant to be so cruel or make your kindness wilt.

You still haunt my dreams, yes even now. To find out what it means I just don't know how.

I don't like who I was it's really not me. I'm so very sorry I wish you could see.

Have you ever regretted leaving someone who was good to you?

      Heather, so beautiful and beautifully expressed a thought will surly free you from guilt. Only my opinion, of course and not presumptuous intent, so I am able to merely thank you for sharing and releasing,... maybe different sequence?..your passion and so eloquently and vehemently expound upon it, well, it is what it is. Peace, Love, my Friend.

      JPB0756, thank you so much for reading and your great comment. I think sometimes you meet the right people at the wrong time in your life. Unfortunate. As they say, youth is wasted on the young. Haha. :)

      HeatherH104, you are welcome, it was my pleasure! Age is truthfully a number...ambiguity is intentional here, my friend, as I would love to see freedom from self-fulfilling prophecies. I am looking to your next contribution quite expectantly.
