Can You Tell?

Oh how I’ve messed up

The trouble

I

have

caused

The hurt

I

have

caused

Never have I been in this position

So unaware

So unsure

Yet simultaneously and utterly aware

Of the pain

I

have

caused

I know not what

to say

Except to hope, be quiet,

and to pray

God!

do I pray

For the resolution and clarity

Of these days

 

 

Will there come a day

When my thoughts will not be consumed

By worry

fear

guilt

doubt

 

In that second

You

were

gone

Were we gone?

You slipped

I wished to take it back

Oh, what have I done --

 

Oh, why do I fail?
