So Sorry

“The business of the poet and the novelist is to show the sorriness underlying the grandest things and the grandeur underlying the sorriest things.” -Thomas Hardy, novelist and poet

Although I hate uttering these words
I am sorry
Sorry
That these words are like my next breath
I am sorry
That you don’t understand how heady this power is
I am sorry
Sorry
That you can’t see the beauty in my mind drifting moments
I am so full of sorry’s about these 3am poems that need to be written
Sorry that I embarrass you with dialogue from random characters
Sorry, sorry, sorry that I am busy building worlds while you are droning on
I would say that I’ll stop
But I’d just be lying
And I am too occupied with writing these words
To bother…
