5 Letter Death

Sorry doesn’t make it better, it doesn’t make it right, and it doesn’t make it even.
Is it in my vocabulary to even say such a hypocritical word?












It’s supposed to make it better, it’s supposed to make it right, and it’s supposed to make it even.
But why does it feel like the end of the world when I say it. It makes me feel awful as if what I did to start with was a life or death thing. You repeat it again but you cringe at the sound.
“S-O-R-R-Y” You spell it out trying to make it a lullaby but have nightmares at the thought. Sorry…ugh why was this so hard? I love him don’t I? “Say it.” “No.” “Say IT!” “NO!” I argue with myself for the sake of time so I can make an excuse. I say it “S-s-sorry” I stutter the word and my vision is hazy. I feel the familiar sting appear in my eyes.
