an apology (and a bad one at that)

sorry to the boys i’ve hurt
and the girls i’ve screwed over
and the toes i’ve trampled on
and the hearts i’ve cracked
(never broken— no, never broken)

sorry to the people
i’ve kept waiting
because i’ve never been good with time
sorry to the therapists i’ve scared off
and the people i’ve chased away

sorry to the world
for the dents and scratches
the footprints in the sand
and the blood on the grass
for my perfume
and the way it stayed in the air
long after i was gone

sorry for the bad times
and the worse times
and sorry for the good times
and the better memories

and sorry i’m so bad at apologies
