Messed Up
Author: Booze

vinebar

I have messed my life up
I have let both of you down.
The son you thought I was
Has not been seen in this town.

Lost trust, tears cried,
Words said, papers read
Nothing can fix this but time,
Broken hearts donít heal on a dime.

One thousand apologizes will not
Help regain the trust I lost.
Too many lies said; I guess
I was too dumb to see the cost.

Lost trust, tears cried,
Words said, papers read
Nothing can fix this but time,
Broken hearts donít heal on a dime.

Hearing the words ĎI love youí
Makes me feel better.
I can not tell you how much they mean
Through the sound of your voice I cherish every letter

Lost trust, tears cried,
Words said, papers read
Nothing can fix this but time,
Broken hearts donít heal on a dime.

I am sorry for the lies Iíve said
Sorry for all the tears I made you shed
I patiently await the day again
When not only am I your son but you call me your friend.

------- Author's Notes -------

Written for my parents after I was arrested and they found out from a different source then their own son.

Hey man

Booze...very touching poem. It's good to see that there are no family ties broken. I felt your sorrow and regret... Booze, is this poem also a song? If so, nice flow. Keep on writing, Booze!
