Poetry Contest

Write Your Poetic Apologies in Proper form
Ok, so I came up with this idea after feeling a need to apologize to DU, in general, and to some in specific.

Pride is not my ally, or yours!

Full disclosure. As many proper apologies in free verse, prose or poem form as you like. Any improper apologies will disqualify the poem. The winner is the one who has the most fun, so I will try to be objective about your subjective perspective.

Edit to add, your poem title MUST contain the words "I apologize" or "I'm sorry"

Sorry

I've said I'm sorry so many times before
So of course, I'll say I'm sorry once more
But according to the Love Story's, sweet Ali
"Love is never having to say your sorry"
So, does this mean you don't love me?
Or maybe it's you who owes me an apology?

I’m Sorry Dear, It’s All My Fault, What Was I Thinking?  
  
You gotta go back, gotta go back
To the Garden, that’s where we found it,
Remember, lover, when we first met?

But then I slouch against the pillows
And shout ‘Why is it so dark in here!?’
Then I realize, I’m here alone.

Forgetting to eat, so much happened
On no sleep in twenty-four hours,
But still I check my phone by its light.

Though it was me, old habits die hard;
I find myself yearning for your call,
So I hear the voice that made me laff.

Then suddenly, it starts to return.
Passion, it seemingly never ends.
Does it mean yesterday was a dream?

On this I’ll meditate unless I
Choose tonight to overmedicate;
I better come to my senses quick.

Have I had a fucking change of heart?
I thought we’d already talked it out;
You’re not to blame, I surrender dear.

I shouldn’t be feeling any pain,
But something is sticking in my craw;
It was what you had said day before.

We cudd’led on this exact wet spot.
The distance began to separate
With ”I wanna date other women.”

I choked, ‘Their platonic company?’
”No, to fuck with and ejaculate -
I just wanted you to know the score.”


Even after when I said ‘How kind’,
I imagined your head on the floor
In a pool of your blood inches deep.

I’m a good girl, and especially,
I’m a generous lover, and more.
‘So you mean I don’t give you enough.’

Your dead silence was thick as a plank.
Now after two days I’m feeling it??
The paintball gun you left me last year,

I just realized a use for it;
You were such a romantic biotch.
I apologize dear, it was YOU!

I Am Sorry For Being Me

I am the stigma  
That stirs the pot  
The label  
That flaps in the breeze  
 
I exist  
Only in a scientific paper  
Revealing my faults  
As if it was a shopping list  
 
Where perfection  
Is regarded as beauty  
I am the ugly face  
That humanity tries to hide  
 
The inkblot that smudges  
But won’t be erased  
My voice an irritation  
That shouldn’t be heard  
 
The message is clear  
Stay invisible  
The masses hate  
The weirdness I radiate  
 
So to save your blushes  
The guilt you might hide  
I say sorry for the mutation  
That made me Autistic  
 
Sorry that your compassion  
Was lacking in someway  
That my condition  
Highlighted your ignorance  
 
That embarrassment you felt  
When I lost control  
I’m sorry my brain  
Goes into overload  
 
I apologise for my short comings  
As a human being  
Cause when it comes down to it  
The word sorry isn’t on your lips

For That I Am Sorry

I am sorry if you think I am going to apologize
For cracks or imperfections within myself that
You find offensive. I talk too much or talk too
Little. I laugh when I meant to cry. I have eyes
That say a lot. I feel alive as others have a flat
Line. I look for the words to bring back the blue

Sky. I am sorry for trying to find all the goodness
Within people who have had a harder time than
Me. I am sorry for laying my heart on the line for
Those who would do the same. I have the fullness
Within my heart for the apology that matters. Scan
All the words you want to as you look for a door

Or hidden meaning, but that will get you nowhere.
I am sorry for everything I did not say or express.
I am sorry if I act bitter or disappointed as I have
High expectations. I am sorry if the words I swear
Are true do not mean much. I am sorry for the mess
And stress of life. I am sorry for love that is halved.

Sincerely,

A Truly Apologetic Individual

You all are a fun bunch, albeit mavericks to the rule. Should fun trump propriety?

“You all are a fun bunch, albeit mavericks to the rule. Should fun trump propriety?” — EdibleWords    
   
   
Hey lady, we don’ need no stinking rules!    
Who do you think you are with all yer fuss,    
Right in the middle of a paint gun duel?    
So with you, we got nothin’ to discuss.    
   
You’ll ‘scuse us as we stand as one n point:    
Hey lady, we don’ need no stinking rules!    
How dare you let yer nose get outta joint,    
N’ tell us off like we’re a bunch o’ fools.    
   
It ain’t our fault we graduated school,    
So who you callin’ mav’rick to our face?    
Hey lady, we don’ need no stinking rules!    
Yer lucky we don’ toss you from this place.    
   
Now show us some respect, apologize!    
The work we do by entering our jewels    
Is worthy more than any plastic prize;    
Hey lady, we don’ need no stinking rules!

Well , when I saw "fun ...........> trump ...........> propriety" in the same sentence ,
I knew *I* could not be proper about anything...

A good ass kicking had to be brought forth...but that is my feeling about the idiot

Everybody knows I love an inked up ass-kicking from time to time!



Way to hit my weak spot!

I... Apparition, Forgive Me

My grasping, tight, I've lost what could have been,

or loved too loose, a deficit unseen.

The words I write are echoes of a heart,

though not my own, I diatribe impart.

Magnetic mind, repelled or drawn due north,

the pendulum swing bindings back and forth.

I lock myself inside, you can't come in,

this solitude, a self imposed prison.

I cry myself to sleep and call your name,

to reel you in, and push you out again.

Duplicitous, contrary and perverse,

this hyper-focused blessing is my curse.

A sorry state, this will won't compromise,

to own these faults, i must apologise.
