I lied
     And I’m sorry
          It won’t happen again

I came
     To see you
          But I felt I needed an

Excuse.

Tell me
     Why I can’t
          Just say what I want?

Is it
     That I lack
          The necessary courage?

I want
     It to be
          Right this time, but

I fear
     I already
          Screwed up. Can you please

Forgive?
