Day 3: My Apology

Dear Shari:
Please accept my
sincere apology.
Try as I might
I can’t seem to
cut him off
completely.

Remembering
all the ugly
hurtful things
pissed me off for a while.
Still, I wasn’t able
to catapult myself from that
through disgust
to I totally can’t stand him now.

With humility, I confess
love
is the only thing my
heart understands
to do to him.

Regretfully yours,
me.
