Escalating Apology – Freeverse

I’m sorry for the mess and the invisible wounds.
I’m sorry for leaving you in tatters.
But you’re still the same gaslighting ruckus sitting inside an eye-candy tote bag.
You’re still capable of telling your long-time girlfriend, ‘I think I was in love with my best friend, Maybelline, a few months ago. I just didn’t realize it.’
You’re still capable of turning all her pity towards you.
You’re still capable of emotional blackmail.
Now, I’m not sorry for moving on and choosing myself.
