Thirteen Ways of Looking at "I'm Sorry's"

I.
It was just as accident when I bumped you in the hall
I told you I was sorry, you said don't worry at all

II.
I didn't mean to kiss you too hard but we both went in too fast
I told you I was sorry, you said it was okay and laughed

III.
When I couldn't see you that night I knew you were sad
I told you I was sorry, you said we'd make more plans

IV.
When I lied to keep you happy I thought it would be okay
I told you I was sorry, you said it was just the day

V.
When I didn't hear you right I tried to listen well
I told you I was sorry, you said you couldn't tell

VI.
When I asked you what was wrong you got more mad at me
I told you I was sorry, you said that I should be

VII.
When I asked you what you'd change about me and didn't follow the list
I told you I was sorry, you told me all that I'd missed

VIII.
When I asked you what you wanted from me, you ignored me
I told you I was sorry, you walked away and left me lonely

IX.
When I had nothing more to say and you asked me why
I told you I was sorry, you let the silent time pass by

X.
When I looked at you and didn't smile, you stared at me
I told you I was sorry, you looked back at the TV screen

XI.
When I put on a fake smile, you said the day was bad
I told you I was sorry, you said "oh well. I've had it."

XII.
When you asked me what I wanted I said I didn't know
I told you I was sorry, you said you had to go

XIII.
When you told me you still loved me, I looked down at my feet
I finally found the courage not to say "I'm sorry."
