Why do you run before
my apologies have a chance
Is my sorry
not the color of a rose?
Does it not smell of
regret, sorrow, remorse?
Would a different word,
a softer word,
thaw the forgiveness in your eyes?
Ich liebe dich
Я люблю тебя
میں تم سے پیار کرتا ہوں
Well written Benjamin 🙌
You have captured the sentiments well! 👌
Thanks for the constant support and feedback!
Your welcome 🙌
Absolutely amazing! I really felt this one. It sucks when people don’t listen to the apology, and you captured those emotions really well. Love the different languages at the end, too! 👏
It does; it does. I must admit I’m guilty of doing it myself. It’s never a good feeling. Better communication is the key to any relationship with anyone.
That’s very true. But we can always try to be better and more understanding 🙂
Yes, all this. Understanding: one of the keys to life. Have a great night! 🙂
Yes! Thank you, you as well 🙂
Deeply disarming. 🙂🌹 Some of us (including me sometimes haha) talk so much we don’t allow space for apologies… and over time we might learn that people have different ways of apologizing, that are silent… We each have a different love language; for love to last, one has to learn to bridge the gaps. :))
Yes, true. We come back to bridges. Depends how much fear someone has in crossing these. A silent love language; it’s the one we hope to share with someone, a glance or a stare, but it too can have problems when it comes to apologies. I like your thoughts on this!
And I like yours! Yes, silence has its downsides, that’s for sure. Better to reach, at least with the aim to connect. :))
‘Does it not smell of
regret, sorrow, remorse?’ i love this description of smell
Thanks. You bring up a good point. The importance of smell in writing.
I like mixing up the senses because they connect to each other. We smell a person’s character, we sense a person’s style and habits.
I like how you stated that. It’s interesting to think about. The senses are really important to writing. It’s nice when they all can be focused on.
Sorry are always volatile – well written.
True. And thanks.
This hit me right in the feels. Very well written. I love how you added the different languages in the end!
Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this. Appreciate it!
Many of us are guilty of not giving the other a fair chance of apology. Each verse depicts an earnest plead asking that question. Loved the thought and genuine feel this piece conveyed 👌
You’re right. We should all do better on this. Wise words!
Love the thought of a rose-colored sorry
