You Say, “I’m Sorry for Everything”

How am I supposed to know —

What I need

Is for you to state

What happened

That you understand how hurtful

Were your actions

Clean up this dirty room

Your generalities

Fly out the window

Like a bunch of crows

So go your way

I’ve told you how to lighten your burden

I can do no more for you


We Write Poems  NaPoWriMe #04


I raise three fingers

Like fat sausages

And I count

Letting my breath in and out




Three are missing

Hiding as in a child’s game

Have not been created

Nor have we made love

In as long as I remember

And yet today is number four

Best when choices are limited

Too many choices confuse

Like the swan

That chooses a duck for a partner

I choose poetry

  1. Fantastic, Annell……”your generalities fly out the window like a bunch of crows”……..fabulous piece, pointed and perfect. Light a candle after those noisy crows fly out:)

  2. Yes, the exodus of crows was the most powerful image for me also..these words may be hard to say but the power with which they are ‘said’ resonates..loud..clear..strong..Jae
