    I Apologise...
    For every time, we've called you that word starting with a 'B'
    For every tear you shed,
    for every time you have bled,
    for every time you have been used, disrespected and abused,
    for all the favours you have asked, and we has refused,
    For every single lie that has come out our mouths,
    stories upon stories, tails of countless amounts

    For every time you got mad, because we refused to listen
    for all the feelings of regret, wishing things were much different.
    For every time you have yelled, for every voice you’ve raised,
    on those angry nights and those stressful days.


    For each time we've addressed you in a demeaning way,
    for all the times we've tried to make eye contact, but our eyes go astray.
    For every look you were given of desire and lust
    for the times we broke the rule of look and not touch,

    And for all the bad that I'll do, whether spontaneous or planned
    I apologise today as a person, and as a man...
    -----------------------
    alternative ending.**
    And for all the bad that I'll do, whether spontaneous or planned
    I apologise for being what I am, and not being a man.

    I wanna forgive you with everything in my heart
    I wanna see the real you
    and have the real talk

    I wanna know
    that I can trust in you
    At least being honest
    when you're not
    with just being you..

    ...
    Loving this poetry, beautifully written

    It's sometimes what a woman needs to hear, even if it's not from the man who wronged her. I felt your words, and appreciate them. Well posed write.

    WOW!!!! I accept your apology...LOL!!! And sometimes even when it doesn't come from who we want to hear it from...we have to accept it and apply it to all who have wronged us! Forgiveness is so important!

    Well Done poet, Well Done!!!!
