I said some things

I shouldn't have said.

A book was left

That shouldn't have been read.

I didn't once mean

The words you saw.

I was only upset

And blinded by flaws.

I was angry;

And I was mad.

I was confused;

And I was sad.

I couldn't see past

My own selfish greed.

And I'm so, so sorry

For all you did read.

What you saw written

Was not the truth.

I was wrong to say it.

I don't really hate you.

I know I hurt you;

If not made you cry.

It tore you up to know

That I wanted you to die.

I'm so sorry, Daddy.

I was in fear.

What started in anger

Ends now in tears.
