You have not apologised

Friendship spanning decades.
Four friends in a fix.
One day three were hurt.
Callously hurt by one.

Friendship demolished.
Yesterday’s memories.
Today all shattered.
A gloom spreading.

At first I let it slide.
Hurt was all I felt.
Until I tasted bile within.
Now anger is festering.

The light flickers.
Darkness is creeping in.
I don’t want you in my life.
I want to erase you out.

A letter written to you.
This friend took the first step.
Laying out a bleeding heart.
You apologised through sender.

Yet, I don’t forgive you.
Does this make me heartless?
All I got was a forwarded message.
Long since deleted. Erased!

Shame for not forgiving.
Yet, I remain stubborn.
Everyone makes mistakes.
God forgives, why can’t I?

How will I face God?
Fear grips my heart.
I am trapped by emotions.
Of hurt, anger and pride.

Can this be mended?
A hurt I cannot forgive.
How can forgiveness start?
You have not apologised.

I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
