"Sorry" is a Curse

October 1, 2020

I don't think that there's a word that carries emptiness quite like "sorry".
"sorry" means well. she truly does.
but she's the cornerstone of
                                          
                                          every
                                                single
                                                    little
                                                        bad thing

from which we try to ease our burden of guilt.

does it work?
sometimes, perhaps.
have i seen it work?
not yet, but i pray that it might.
because at the end of this
                                        sad
                                            solemn
                                                irreversible
                                                    lonely day

what's happened can't be undone.

i can't speak to you; she who hurts
my words won't reach you
my one word won't heal you

"sorry" is my curse

    Don't know who those two people are (I probably should), but that's so sad!! This poem reminds me of miserable rain for some reason.

    reggie told me he won't dance with you unless you're harry styles, but he appreciates your kind words and will accept your hugs. he doesn't like prom nominations by the way, so..most likely he'll just be chilling in the corner on his phone looking at memes.

    The format of this is pretty creative and it gave me another perspective on this great piece! I love how even though it’s pretty short it still holds a load of meaning, which is amazing!

    woah this piece... this really got me. like, on a different level. wow. um. what can i say to this?! well... sorry has always been a word that is like... kind of taboo in my friend group, because we would all say it for the littlest things, and then everyone else would scold the person for being sorry about something that didn't matter. but i've always been really good at being sorry...? if that makes sense? like, even with the small things, i really feel the weight of whatever i have done or whatever i am trying to offer condolences for. like you said in your message board, empathy can be a blessing and a curse--much like being sorry. being so empathetic, this really resonated with me. i guess i didn't need a super long comment to say that lol, but this... yeah, this hit hard. wow. um. great piece <3
