so sorry but true

a love story can remain

an illusive goal


Well I watched a movie.

And it broke my heart.

It was so very sad.

Right from the start.

It made me think.

Of things I have done.

Things that I can't change.

Not a single dam one.

I know this makes no

sense to someone like you.

I hate it sometimes

I am sorry but true.


"SORRY BUT TRUE" the title of a book.

I read it when I was a young child.

I found it in a far away corner nook.

And it was just calling my name.

I read it from cover to cover.

And it was not about what I thought.

It was about a woman and her lover.

And all the trouble they got in.

I am glad now that I read it.

Because I learned a lot of things.

So now when I have to just sit.

I think of the and thank God.

Glad that this happened to them.

And never happened to me.

It made me want to skim.

Every other book I read.
