My Apologies

Poetic Asides – Poem-A-Day Challenge – Day 12 Prompt:

We're going to write an apology poem. You can apologize for ending a elationship, breaking a chair, or maybe you can even apologize for not being apologetic.

I’m sorry.

I don’t have
eight days in a week
there aren’t enough pages
to hold all the words
I have to take
a break to sleep

I’m sorry.

chocolate isn’t
calorie free
caffeine isn’t good
for me
smiling causes
wrinkles on my face

I’m sorry.

I’m a grammar snob
fretting over your and you’re
advertising printers don’t
employ full time editors
I can fall in love with a writer
who uses semi-colons – correctly.

I’m sorry.

that I’ll never catch up
on all the books to read
that I save
every single magazine
that I used all the honey
in my tea

I’m sorry.

about some of these things
but not all.

I'm sorry, and not so sorry about many of the same things :)

Unfortunately though, I have a horrid habit of using (...'s) and (-'s) when I should most often use (;'s) and (--'s). Probably even worse that I know how and when they should be used and often fail to :(

(My affinity for ...'s is a running joke with my sister) :D
