These Are My Apologies

I cannot fathom what I did to deserve this treatment.
It must have been something terrible,
For me to lose your love.
For you to cease caring.
I am sorry if I have burdened you with my existence.
There is nothing that I can do to satisfy you.
So while you continue your irrational condemnation,
These are my apologies.
I am sorry that I tried so hard to make you proud of me.
I am sorry that I spent so much time making a future for myself,
That it inconvenienced you at some point.
I am sorry that God blessed me with many talents,
Which only cost you money.
I am sorry that I cared so much
About my own passions and my life.
But the thing I am most sorry about
Is that no matter what I do or say,
Or how close to perfection I become,
You will never truly see.
You cannot look outside yourself at the person who needed you.
The selfishness clouds your vision so that you never saw my tears.
Well my eyes are dry now, and I don’t need you anymore.
So you can go on about your lives, forgetting that I exist.
And I will walk on, trying not to look back in hope,
For my heart tears every time that I do.
I am done with pain.
I build a wall.
I can bear your crushing gaze no longer.

These Are My Apologies
