Three Ways To Apologize To a Special Woman
A poem from the novel
"The Essence of Poetry II:Gerald's Sophomore Yet Grown Poetrybook"
Written by: Gerald L. Ingraham
The initial approach is sudden, swift, yet easy
If you can admit how sorry being a jerk could be,
Then to hug her without feeling anymore queasy,
Because we men get sick, when none would see.
There is more than just one other way
To apologize in a special woman's presence;
For example, hold her hand as you find what to say,
While getting on a knee in your love's own essence.
Then again, one could feel the horror of sorrow
Of a completely broken and intangible heart,
Which leaves you to wonder and ponder of tomorrow,
Because the nightmare of hurt tears you apart.
Now, I am a man shall pleed
In secrecy or outside in the public;
Whichever a lady shall need,
Because she should love it;
I would ask for her forgiveness;
Unlike many men I would do it in person,
Because only the lady and I must live this;
The mistakes I make, I wish to not worsen.
I am not materialist when it comes to love;
I may bring flowers or chocolate candy,
But nothing objective compares to what I give up;
That's when my heart, body, and soul comes handy.
I love my lady and I make apologies with pride;
I have no fear to admit exactly how feel for her,
Because I see no need to keep it inside,
If my cordial love is genuinely real for her.
I would prefer to get on my left knee,
While jitterously holding her hand
And find the words to say as she looks at me;
Hoping that whatever she'd understand.
There are three ways to apologize to a lady;
However, I chose apology number two;
Which one you habituated lately?
Was the apology something you felt to be true?
