I Apologize For My Actions



I have to admit I'm insecure,
And maybe that's why I acted as I did.
Possibly for the fear of losing you.

Over time, I have corrected many flaws.
Left now, is the fact that I still love you.
Only my heart knows the pain I feel.
God himself, could only imagine it.

Inhale the sweetness of the air, for
Zealous is what I am.
Envious of those receiving your love,
Fainting at the thought of your calm eyes.

Oceans of tears, I have cried,
Regretting not a single moment.
Mourning the loss of your heart.
Years could pass, and still the pain felt.

All I can think about is you,
Caring for another heart and soul.
Taking them in your arms to hold,
Ignoring the thought of my existence.
Obsessed with this thought, I cry.

Nothing has been the same
Since you parted from my life.

Sad poem, Lynn, but very well done. This is a difficult acrostic to pull off, but you've done a wonderful job!

Caroline & Munda...Thank you very much. This is the first acrostic I have done. Amazingly, it took me only about 20 minutes to write. I did it during my "free period" at school today.

Thank you too Andrew, for the comments....
