Forgive my spiteful words spewed upon your gentle soul,
Thoughts no longer my own; a seething storm tearing us apart.
Forgive the tears I caused to roll down your face
Anguish created the day I lost myself to a cruel addiction.
Forgive the countless sleepless nights I caused you while I crept among the darkness
Embracing my selfish acts.
Forgive the cloud released on your life without a warning,
My sudden but expected departure from your arms.
Knowing I am free at last
