I try, I try and I keep on trying …
The words get stuck in my mouth!
Wish I could gather myself
And let it all out …
All out in one go.
Shed this burden off my chest.
It’s killing me softly from inside:-
I’m captive at despair’s behest!
That I’m sorry, I really am,
No, not a cliche, neither a hopeless rant!
I regret from my heart’s core the day
When I let go of your hand!
But I couldn’t tell you that all awhile;
I am but a captive of my obnoxious pride.
The evil egoist messes my mind:-
Alas, I couldn’t but take the stride!
To tell you that it was my fault!
Distraction got me swayed!
You wanted to build a house
And I brought it down before it was made!
Bathed in my chauvinism
I was hopeless as you cried;
I couldn’t fathom that with
Every teardrop a part of you died …
I do now and I curse myself
As I helplessly stand alone
Wish you could take me back
But then you’ve already moved on …
I know it’s too late and you care less
But still I want to look into your eyes
And let go of my emotions as I
Hold your hand and apologize!
