It was a mistake
I am sorry
The day I let you slip from my grasp, I wanted to take you back
I replay the moment, undoing time and ripping up a paper that should have never existed.
I kept saying “we will take her back” but they…they wouldn’t give you back.
It was a mistake, you see.
My heart–our hearts–are torn to shreds without you.
We try to recover, but there is no recovering.
No one can replace you
And only you can repair the gash in my soul that bleeds.
