My Mistake (a Poem)

Updated on March 25, 2011

The air is thick

of disappointment and regret.

Can no longer breathe

the air you share.

Loyalty means nothing,

a path chosen,

never to be corrected.

Your words remembered

false and hollow.

Tainted by your blame.

Friendship and partnership

swept away by your hate

bottled on the shelf

lid sealed tight.

Time brings forgiveness

soothed by the years.

But forgotten no

your meanness, your legacy.
