My Mistake

February 25, 2008
By Laurena Patarkatsi, New City, NY

You begged for my forgiveness
Cried for my love
Yearned for a second chance
I didn’t want to bother
With the pain
You left me
I didn’t want to hear your excuses
Or speak to you
Finally, you had enough
You’ve moved on
But now,
I’m weeping inside
I want to hear your voice
Ask me to come back to you
The pain that I thought would go away
Is only stronger
And harder to deal with
It’s my mistake
For letting you go
