Slippery Slope

It’s a slippery slope to when you let your thoughts voice unbridled
There may be no turning back
No more given slack
For your many imperfections
On the attack
Invites an attack
There may well be no place left to retreat or to run and hide

You will never say you’re sorry

Did you want to open the can that’s so long been under pressure?
Is there ever really a good time
Admitting to a crime?
Staring back at your reflection
Repressing signs
Seen through the times
Questioning if there still remains an ability to endure

I will never say I’m sorry

You knew they could never love you but you knew they’d always try
Even though you said the same
Through with playing the game
Falling back to introspection
No one holds blame
With emotions lamed
The only hope is to still feel at least a little dignified

We’ll forever say we’re sorry

I’m sorry that I couldn’t find a way to forgive you when you made a mistake
I was wrong
I was impulsive
I was a fool

I’m sorry for blindsiding you like I did even though you were already gone
It was cold
It was callous
It was cruel

But it’s too late now to say I’m sorry
So instead I’ll just say let’s be friends
I hope that’s where the story ends

I’m sorry that I didn’t try harder to talk to you and try to work things out
I was scared
I was jaded
I was isolated

I’m sorry I could find no other way but to stay so far off in the distance
My thoughts confused
My heart bemused
My dreams overrated

Sometimes it’s too late to say you’re sorry
So instead you just say let’s be friends
And hope that’s where the story ends

You know it so well
The same old story to tell
Your own private hell
Where you can dwell

It was a bad fit right from the start
But we all need a hiding place
Where no one knows us
Because we still don’t know ourselves
So we run and hide thinking we’re so smart
Trying desperately to just keep pace
To our blind ambition and how we think we should be
But that isn’t who we see
When we look in the mirror

Discarding the prize
Sandstorm burning your eyes
Subconscious lies
On which you dwell

What you needed to do
It was too sudden and too new
You wonder if she knew
And if she dwells

You know it’s too late
Too late to say you’re sorry
It was always too late
Because it was never meant to be
It will always be too late
Always forever but never seen
Forever is never too late
To never say you’re sorry

You know it so well
The same old story to tell
It’s only your soul you sell
So you can dwell
