    The following excerpt was GIVEN to me by a fellow poet that I was having a conversation with, the subject being the proper way
    to apologize or be apologized to, as well as the fact that one of the two of you, either the apologizer or the apologizee may or may have misunderstood something said or done...thereby
    bringing about the need to apologize. At the time we were both
    listening to LIVING COLOUR'S TIMES UP cd...cut #4....how scary
    that turned out to be. He said that I could have it to do with as I
    wished, so with thanks to .DR TREGGE here goes...........

    (MY APOLOGIES)..........THE END

    The sound of your voice~
    ...So non-impassionata
    Made it clear to me~
    ...That my presence was persona-non-grata
    Apparent (now) wasted effort, time, and expenditures on you~
    ...I something that I am unwilling to continue to do
    It's just that I wish love's blinders~
    ...Hadn't obstructed my view
    I would've seen months ago that there was a him & you~
    ...And it would not have been so difficult
    To accept that although we never really got to start~
    ...(Except for some futile attempts on my part)
    Eventually my bruised love chamber recover~
    ...I recognize now that whatever it was(n't) is now over
    Perhaps, as a consequence, I wouldn't be feeling so light in the
    wallet~
    ...Moreover, maybe I wouldn't feel so HEAVY in my HEART!!!

    p.s.
    although it may be viewed as such...on my part at least this poem
    isn't about any one person in particular, and yet almost everyone
    in general may feel a kindredship to this body of work. The words
    are all his (.DR TREGGE) but he made a present of them to me
    because, as he said, he appreciates me being a sounding board..
    and it's not such a rarity to discover that yourself and someone
    else have gone through similar situations as some people would
    like to lead you to believe.

    Never easy when a relationship doesn't end up where you think it would, on that, many can relate.
