I'm Sorry

i'm sorry
not for your pain and sorrow
but for my own
for allowing it to grow
and nearly consume me.
i'm sorry
not for your anger
but for my own
for allowing it to overtake me
and keep me wounded.
i'm sorry
not for your disappointment
not for your disillusionment
but for my own
for not clawing my way up
after my fall.
i'm sorry
that you are sad and lonely
that you are soulless and dreamless
that you are forever searching
that you are forever unaccepting.
i'm sorry
for what you have done to me
that you kept me down and afraid
shackled to your coldness and and lack of commitment.
i'm sorry
not that i have found an escape
not that i have found my freedom
not that i found a world open to me
not that i am now accepted and loved
i'm sorry
for you.
