About the Poem

This poem was written in response to a posting on this site. The poet had written a beautiful poem about her temptation to stray from a serious relationship for someone she found new and exciting. This poem seeks to tell her that her decision has to be lived with.

Don't Tell Me You're Sorry

She said she was sorry and started to cry
Said it just happened, she didn’t know why
She said she’d not loved him, she only loved me
She said she’d not stray again ever - I’d see

I pictured their passionate times in my mind
I searched for forgiveness but none could I find
I knew if she loved me then surely she’d see
That her moments with him brought us both misery

So I pulled from her grasp and I just walked away
And the dreams that we shared were forgotten that day
Though she’d asked for forgiveness I just had to find
A love I could count on to truly be mine

it takes great strenght to let go of someone you love even if they hurt you and i admire that. i have been in that situation but sadly i did not have the strenght to let go. you do not give up on love that easily.

This poem was so sad. I loved it because it is truth on paper. It is hard to get those feelings out and it sounded beautiful

I loved your poem but maybe she was really sorry. I can see you've been hurt, but sometimes is it necessary to throw away everything?

Brilliant, realy made me think. Any woman who has been tempted to stray or thinks they might be tempted should read this. Brought a tear to my eye.

This poem expressed how I feel about a love I had..and what could have happened to me. The only word I could think of after I read this poem was 'wow'. I think that word is perfect for this poem.

This poem reflected my soul and how I felt about a past love. It has also helped me struggle forward and find new love.
