    To say
    “Accept my apology”
    When I’m only apologizing
    Coz you caught me
    Is an exercise in
    Futility
    Accepting the apology
    Is irrelevant to
    My abuse of you

    To say
    “Please, forgive me”
    When I continue to displease you
    And do all those things that
    Brings pain to you
    Is ludicrous to me

    To say
    “I didn’t mean to hurt you”
    is a lie
    just like
    “I wasn’t trying to bring rain
    into the sunshine of your cloudless day”
    won’t make the pain go away.

    To say
    “I’ll make it up to you”
    isn’t true
    coz once the mirror is shattered
    the captured image ceases to exist
    I only wish
    I hadn’t broken the mirror
    …that your image of me
    had remained faithful and true

    coz
    through it all
    I still love you.

    its a life enhancing and liberating experience
    when a man stops trying to make up excuses
    and lies
    and deals with the mistakes that have been
    made

    Truth be Told!!

    Excellent work

    Baller....

    How sad, after all is done
    that apologies & realizations
    come to little to late....

    would she...could she believe "I love you"?

    enjoyed the read.
