I am sorry


I am sorry

by Marites Avisado-Responte

I am sorry
If I could just fill this
tiny box with thought
I want to say…
I address it with
” I am sorry ” boldly
written down the center
where two flaps meet
so nothing is missed.
The one who delivers
should handle it firmly.

Pay attention to the
word ” fragile ” taped
across its body,
so nothing inside breaks.
When you open it, say a
little prayer so you won’t
rip tiny details of my message.
Read them by your heart
and tell me how you take it…
You said, ” Mom, you succeed in
putting the right words together.”
My soul has quieted
although outside, heavy
drops of rain is raging.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: The Guilt that Haunts Me.”
