My Apology


I apologize.

My writing is quite dark, you see.

But this is the only way to get it out of me.

The only way for me to let it go,

The only way to let everyone know.

I don’t do well with self-expression.

Which is why I suffer from depression.

This is the easiest way to exercise my demons.

So forgive me, but I have my reasons.

I’m sorry if my poems are raw.

But otherwise my feelings begin to claw.

Claw at my heart, my mind, my soul.

Claw to the point that they begin to take a toll.

One last time, I’m really sorry.

That you have to see the somber side of me.

  • Comment from author about the poem: For those who follow me, you already know most of my poems and writings are very intense and “dark” or “heavy” are good descriptive words for my work. I would like to apologize for coming across as so pessimistic. But the reason I write such personal and negative poems is because they just come to me, and I put it down, and it helps me release a bit of the pain I felt. Like a weight lifted off of my shoulders

    Tiger Autumn...

    There needs to be a safe place for us to feel our pain and truly grieve when we need to. Repressing emotions, ignoring them, denying them constantly...only causes them to fester and grow and sap us of strength. Do not apologise.

    I don't know what you're going through and this is the first of your poems Ive read, but I know it can take a lot of courage to be vulnerable and honest. Thankyou for sharing your feelings!
