Apologies accepted, another Day 3

Let us continue poeming as the last minutes of Day 3 ticked away before I could post this. Here is my Third 3rd prompt for the day. It comes from Poetic Asides – apologetic or non-apologetic poem. I’m sorry or not.



My tired eyes

have said it all

Exhaustion’s grip has made me humble

My eyes of languor

and dreams of linger

apologise for staying longer

than time and patience

for which we had,

indeed, agreed.

    This is a very interesting poem–the sounds–the linger/languor/longer–are wonderful and describe those feelings of passive exhaustion so well. K.

  2. Manic – thanks a lot!

  3. Love the wordplay. I think I’ve been in that situation once or twice.

  4. Caren – so nice to see you here! That situation seems to be very popular, in fact 🙂
