#2 – English

Posted on Updated on

I say sorry a lot.  Perhaps it comes from my grandmother or perhaps from my breeding.  I’ve always been the self-effacing gentleman; the softly spoken, apologetic alien.  But it isn’t true.  Its a lie I tell myself as I beg to sleep.  Sorry is her eyes as they sink into the water on a sunny spring day.  They plead when I dress, when I shave, when I drive, when I live my hollow, polite, timid, sour pretend life.  I only say sorry because I am.

Share, Like, Tweet, Favourite and Follow – it all helps 🙂  I’m looking for more awesome words to write stories on – tweet them to me using the hashtag #onewordonestory and I’ll credit you with the inspiration.
