Forgive Me

Kneeling figure

Pain that I cause, I don’t mean
just that emotion gets out of hand
and always too late when I realize
things you hate I did, forgive me

I want to paint your world, golden
but darker hue comes out in the end
I want to make you smile all the time
but bitter juice I sometimes serve

if I could just fit in the right rhythm
make this love song a masterpiece
with passionate lines that rhymes
then perhaps that hurt will cease

it hurts when you can’t smile at me
I know, because I am a part of you
words you skip to utter, so not to sting me
in your anger you still find love for me

wish I could be the better man
won’t do things that can hurt
but I do stupid things, sometimes
I’m glad you forgive and forget

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.

Through poetry we can inspire others, we can make someone smile and words can make others cry be it of joy or sadness.
