to a friend

words cut
words hurt
sorry i say
to any hearts i have stabbed
with my insensitive words
to one soul i especially plea
my words of apology

this i cannot prove
but intuition tells me
behind your facade of smiles
i do see anger
i do feel the distance

if my words caused this fate
evoked the wrath in you
i truly apologize
forgiveness in words
are not what i am asking
just a sense of closeness is all i need
as a sign of acceptance
of this apology
