I Never…

By: S. Davis

I never meant to hurt you

Just have to say

I never meant to hurt you

Although it turned out that way

I never meant to hurt you

It’s the lone regret I carry and I live through each day

I disappointed you

Another sin that stays close to my heart

Adding another brick to the wall that keeps us apart

Living is learning to deal with loss

Failure created by one’s actions

Those of which could have been prevented

Thought consuming they are

Truly they are

I am deeply sorry

Anger and stress

Sadness and despair

Longing to rekindle what was once so dear

Yet that will not be

Parting of the road

Healing of the scars

Life goes on


I never meant to hurt you

Again, I just have to let you know

I never meant to hurt you

Still my soul aches for you so

    Did he break up with the girl bc he found someone else? And did she ever hear this apology or was this something u wrote for yourself?

    You tell me, Athena? Ha. It’s about the end of a relationship where one person is holding the pain close to heart (and taking ownership of the breakup) – compounded by the fact that they no longer speak, at all.

    I wish there were a break up pill. One you can take and forget about how much your heart hurts. I am amazed at the people who split up and carry on as if there is another relationship right around the corner. Finding someone who gets you is tough. Trying again is, well, exhausting. I wrote about this in my first blog. You should check it out! athenavox.wordpress.com

      I wish there was a pill as well; my last breakup was tough. Two years and it still lingers. I want to see your reply to mine on the “Dating divide.” I have been reading your work!

        TWO YEARS! That’s how long my friend took to get over her ex-husband and awful divorce. And it was bad. I certainly don’t want this to take two years to get over, but the last 6 months have not been getting any better. Love is like a form of energy. And when the relationship ends, the energy can’t be destroyed so it gets converted to a gravitational pull that keeps you pinned to your bed and crying all day….at least for the first few months. Maybe that’s just some of us. I understand about the lingering. It’s just so disappointing, but we are not alone!
