I tried to be considerate,
but I was wrong.
I wanted to lessen your burden,
but it didn’t help.
I tried to explain myself,
but you didn’t hear the apology.
I threw myself at your feet
begging for forgiveness,
but you walked all over me.
I cried a river for the pain I caused,
and you simply watched me drown.

Linking to d’Verse Poets where the task was to write a poem with undercurrents.
