All Apologies

heartbrokenI’m sorry for being me
For loving you
In the wrong way
At the worst time
When you needed more
And I failed
This deferential self
Letting you lead
When you follow best
But I was unsure
Trapped in your eyes
Too honest of me
This dependency
On your version of you
Put out on display
So picture perfect
Because I let it slide
Said the things
I thought you wanted
When you wanted a silence
So infinite in its spell
It would pause this moment
Before you say those words
That rend me in two
I only need you
And I’m sorry for these tears
For what they signify
Because you’ll never cry
Over what we’ve become
This man who loves alone
But that’s just me
And I’m sorry.
