Forgiveness Is Not What I Deserve

I'm so sorry,

my friend

for all I've done


The mistakes I've made

are weights

tied to each of our feet

drowning us both in an ocean 

of disaster 

that I caused


I'm so sorry,

I haven't been myself 

I've been a shadow of someone else

I'm lost

and it scares me, too


What I want 

is not forgiveness 


What I want 

is for you to give yourself

what you deserve 


I will never forgive myself

for smothering you, too


I will never forgive myself

and I don't want you to either

because that is not 

what I deserve

    I agree with sadpoet. Forgive yourself! Great write by the way, but you do deserve forgiveness.
