“I’m sorry” she whispers timidly
For every mistake she never made
She’d like to fade into the blue
Quietly waiting for her life’s breakthrough
For every word she never said
There’s a backlash of a hundred
Every time she takes a step
Poison shoots out filled with hatred
Her tears form puddles of regret
For every mistake, every misstep
Even the ones she didn’t make
Cause her tears to turn scarlet.
The whispers of her past haunting
Every day, every memory, every dream
Swiftly becoming endlessly daunting
So that every breath becomes a silent scream.
Will her freedom be forever out of reach
Taking one step forward while being pulled by
Her fears stuck on to her dreams like a leech
Draining them as if they were never meant to be?
