Manipulating Apologies

VintageCrayon

141 views

You said that you were sorry,

You said it wouldn't happen again,

That the alcohol was behind it,

That you would make amends

You said that you were sorry,

Indeed it happened once more,

You made us empty promises

The same ones from before

You said that you were sorry,

You requested another chance

For a short time things improved,

Followed by the same old song and dance

You said that you were sorry,

But by then it was too late

I was much too scared to leave,

My fear had sealed my fate

You said that you were sorry,

I knew your words were lies,

Your previous actions and words

Created many hidden cries

You said that you were sorry,

But your drinking rarely ceased

The violence unpredictable,

My hopes for peace decreased

You said that you were sorry,

But what were you apologizing for?

The verbal abuse, keeping us up,

Maybe for slamming that door?

You said that you were sorry,

But the damage has been done

Your violent actions over the years

Built up in my memory one by one

You said that you were sorry,

Being arrested taught you a lot,

In the back of my mind I know

You're only sorry you got caught

Don't say that you're sorry,

The words long lost their meaning

I don't believe your kind actions

Are anything less than scheming.
