Contest Entry


by Natali Holden

I'm so sorry.
I never meant to hurt you.
How was I supposed to know it would?

I thought you wanted me gone.
You didn't let me know
that I was loved and wanted.

You hardly ever told me,
so I left.
I never even said goodbye.

But then I found the notebook
that you left in the car.
It said how much I meant to you.

It told me everything,
from the day we met.
All my stories, all your love

was inside.
Now I know,
you just didn't realize I wanted to be told.

And now,
I regret leaving.
I'm so sorry!

Would you forgive me?
Could I come back?
Would you still love me?

I am so fearful
to return to your arms.
What if you don't love me anymore

after all I've done?
But know this,
I still love you and I'm sorry...
