I’d hate me, If I were you

Forgive, forget, and move on,
I don’t know, how you do it.
‘Cause 4 years and 5 months later,
I still can’t look myself in the mirror.
After what I did to you,
I don’t know me anymore.
Who am I? I have no clue,
And my heart is still sore.
But you forgave me in an instant,
Didn’t even ask for an explanation.
And years later, I still ponder…
“Did you care?” I wonder.
‘Cause if our places were reversed,
We would no longer stay friends,
That would have been the end.

For NaPoWriMo Day 6

For this poem, I took a line, ‘If our positions had been reversed, would I have forgiven her?’ from The Queen of Hearts by Kimmery Martin.

        I thought so .. but the other person just moved on .. not too disturbed .. some situations may be wrong for one and right for the other. But for my conscience, I felt guilty back then .. long ago, so long ago !

    Beautifully worded and so genuine! I love that you promoted the antithesis of being able to forgive. Too often we want the beauty that comes with taking the higher ground, but real life is full of lesser nobilities. And in the truth that is our imperfections, there is a truer beauty to be seen. Well done!
