Apologies burn like acid on my tongue
They are dragged out of my mouth, smothered in sugar and delivered to the undeserving child
The ungrateful selfishness makes me sick
But I have no choice
Sympathy is no longer in my favour
Deceit, lies and secrets have turned the tables against me
I load the blame onto my own shoulders
Heaping it on until the weight crushes my weak spine
This undeserving lowlife begins her slow, painful death
Seen by no one but the dejected gaze of misery
Silently I am begging for someone to see through my coded words of self-loathing
But only disagreeable words of assertion greet my ears
It’s all a lie, this love you’ve proclaimed to me over and over
I can’t look past the affection you still hold for another
This sick, immature child is like a horse wearing blinkers
Oblivious to the world outside of her own pathetic suffering
And getting you to blame me was a clever trick
Divide and conquer, and she could rule the world
And have me rot in a prison of the forever unforgiven
But why can’t she let go?
She’s dragging apologies from my mouth and sucking off the sugar
But the rest is discarded, unread, unaccepted
She’ll rob me blind until my last breath
Then dangle forgiveness in my face, thinking it’s all I ever wanted
But she would be wrong
I don’t care if I die to the sound of taunting and jeering
As long as I’ve heard the sweet song of a changed opinion
The peacekeeper doesn’t always tell the truth
Take my apologies for all they’re worth
For they hold no weight with me.
