I’m sorry
I’m sorry I ever walked into your life
I’m sorry I ever spoke to you
I’m sorry I ever sang for you
I’m sorry I ever cared for you
I’m sorry I ever talked about you
I’m sorry I ever laughed with you
I’m sorry I ever cried for you
I’m sorry I ever wished for you
I’m sorry I ever thought you would maybe…
Love me
You truly were the Lysander
To my Hermia
Friendly at first
But then turning on me
For another
You have every right
To hate me
To ignore me
To call me weird
I’m sorry
For causing you
Any form of disgust
Please erase me
From your life
I no longer matter
To either of us
Forgive me
Forget me
I’m sorry
For hoping
For dreaming
For wishing
I regret my own actions
Far more than you ever could
But love makes people do stupid things
As you’ve seen
And I was foolish
Laugh over this if you must
Call me desperate
Show your friends
What the inside of a girl’s heart really looks like
If you have to
Do so
I no longer care
For love
Or for you

That's right, dedicated fans. It's a bird, it's a plane, it's THE RETURN OF THE ANGST! Like a bad sequel, it comes to haunt you. Ah well, it's a good poem.

Thanks, dreamer_believer. The sad thing is, at my school, we did a production of A Midsummer Night's Dream and I was Hermia and he was Lysander. And they're supposed to be madly in love, right? Well, we didn't even come close to that.
