28 Excuse Me

Something you never meant to do,

Made my jealous side burst through.

Angry words, sneering remarks,

A thought to hurt filled my heart.

It’s hard to watch your dreams come true,

With someone else living them out for you.

A simple truth explains it all-

I built a home and watched it fall.

 You’ve had somebody by your side;

I’ve been alone at night and cried.

Thinking of all the things I miss,

Needing a hug, a word, a kiss.

Sometimes I can’t stop feeling sad,

Remembering so many things I had-

Even the love I want to show

No longer has a place to go.

 I didn’t prepare for things to end.

My path was straight without a bend.

I thought my future was all planned,

But now alone again I stand.

I never knew I’d have to start

A different dream inside my heart,

Or dam the feeling, deny I care,

And find another’s love to share.

 Excuse me if I cast you villain,

If I ladle out the blame.

Excuse me for expressing anger

As I pass around my pain.

It’s still me, though I seem a stranger-

Another time I’ll be myself again.

  4. Hi. I read the comments you left. I just wanted to thank you for the comments and advice. Anyways, the problem with the negotiation with the parents about dating is that my parents are strictly against dating. They have already set the rule, the simple rule of that I’m not allowed to date until I’m out of university with a good job, and well, that’s a long time to wait. And you are right, I am quite young, just a teenager. Thanks again and by the way, I really like your blog .

    1. All things has its time and place. There will come a time when you will be in charge of your life, where you get to make the rules of what is and is not appropriate. Till then, learn, grow, be happy and enjoy your life.

  5. Very lovey poem....

    You know, I thought after my divorce, I was home dry. Then I realised the real work comes through healing and letting go of the bitter feelings, the anger and the awkward place of not having the righy answers to your child's questions.

    At the end of the trials and tribulations, you simply have to be yourself if you intend to relinquish and banish the pain.

    1. Wow, you are so on point, the work is only beginning because life requires you pick up the pieces, put yourself together and keep it moving, living a full life in spite the end of that chapter.
