Short Poems

1. “Lost Love”

I thought I knew what I had
But now the truth is clear
I let go of something special
And now I’m full of fear

I regret the way I acted
The things I failed to do
I’m sorry for the hurt I caused
And for losing sight of you

2. “Broken Trust”

I know I let you down
And now I feel the pain
I didn’t mean to break your trust
But now the damage remains

I wish I could turn back time
And make things right again
I’m sorry for the choices I made
And for the hurt that I’ve caused you, my friend

3. “Words Left Unsaid”

I wish I could have told you
How much you meant to me
But now it’s too late to speak
And my heart is full of regret and apology

I should have been more vocal
And let my feelings show
But now I’m left with silence
And the pain of letting go

4. “Forgive Me”

I know I made mistakes
And caused you so much pain
I wish I could take it all back
And start again

But all I can do is say I’m sorry
And hope that you’ll forgive
I vow to try to make it right
And ensure that we can live and let live.

Medium Poems

1. “Wishes Left Unspoken”

I wish I had the courage
To tell you how I feel
Instead of bottling up my fears
And letting them congeal

I wish I had the words
To express my love for you
But the moment passed me by
And now my heart feels blue

I regret my timidness
And the chances that I missed
I hope you can forgive me
For the love that was dismissed

2. “Broken Promises”

I promised you the world
But only gave you lies
I regret the pain I caused
And the tears that filled your eyes

I took your love for granted
And now it’s too late to mend
But I promise to always remember
The love that we both could have had in the end

I apologize for my selfishness
And the hurt that I bestowed
I hope one day you can forgive me
For the love that I let go

3. “Missing Pieces”

You told me that you loved me
But I pushed you away
I regret the decisions I made
And the words that I never did say

I miss the way you smiled
And the warmth of your embrace
But now I’m left grasping at memories
Of love that I could not replace

I apologize for the pain I caused
And the pieces that I broke
But I hope you can move on
And find love that’s worth the hope.

Long Poems

Remorseful Memories

I once believed that love could conquer all,
That nothing could break us or make us fall.
But now I see my naivety was grand,
As I stand here with a broken heart, and empty hand.

I didn’t realize how much I had to lose,
When I caused all this pain and left you feeling bruised.
You tried so hard to keep our love alive,
But I was too blind and too consumed with pride.

I let you down in so many ways,
And now I regret those decisions for the rest of my days.
I wish I could go back and start anew,
To be the person that I know I should have been to you.

The nights are long and the days are bleak,
As I sit here replaying every moment from every week.
Every mistake, every cruel word spoken,
And every moment of love that I left unspoken.

I can’t change the past, no matter how much I try,
But I promise to do better, to reach for the sky.
To be the partner that you always deserved,
And the one who won’t leave or make you feel unnerved.

My heart is heavy with regret,
But I pray that one day forgiveness I will get.
For I know I have no right to ask,
But I promise to try harder, to be the one who wears the mask.

The mask of love, the mask of devotion,
The mask that you will never doubt my emotion.
For I am sorry for all the things that I’ve done,
And I hope that one day you will forgive me, my one.

So here I stand, with a heart so true,
Asking for your forgiveness, and promising to start anew.
To be the one who you can rely on and depend,
For you are the one who always deserves a happy end.
