A Heart's Confession

Evelyn (Poetry and Visual Arts Editor)

A Heart's Confession

I am sorry for what I had to do

I am sorry I was never complete

And how you will never be

Always cracking, crumbling.

I am sorry for being persistent,

Keeping you in

Gut grabbing pain.

Will you ever forgive me

for not being around

For leaving so soon

For being deadly.

I hope, one day.

And even though I will never come back

I hope the muscle keeping

You alive is good.

Little one,

You will be stronger

From keeping you in pain,

And not being whole,

But I will never

Apologize for the scar I leave behind, reminding you


We will never be whole

And leaving was the best I could do

Because you did not have a chance with me

Even though they wanted

Us to work.
