Message In Stanza

Poetry and Musings


I see your face looks aged
Time is your wrinkles
Splotches are your scars
I should have reached for your hands
But I reached for the stars

I looked outward
Instead of at you
I got scared
I wanted something else
Than all times you have cared

I come from a past
But don’t we all?
I guess I don’t hide it
You recommend changing the way I think
I guess I haven’t ever fully tried it

I want your love
But I guess now I don’t deserve it
I have turned my back on you too many times
My offenses resulted in a bunch of unforgivable crimes

I don’t mean crimes of the law
But crimes of the heart
What do I do now?
Give me a second chance
Because maybe for the first time I feel blue now
