I am sorry that I am not a different person

but I would never change who i am

I am sorry that I am not more beautiful

but i believe i am fine

I am sorry that I cannot laugh at your insults

because i believe that they are wrong

I am sorry that you cannot always remember what I said

but it doesn't mean i didn't say it

I am sorry that I cannot easily let go

but it is not my fault

I am sorry that I get jealous

but i cannot help it

I am sorry that I am damaged

but one day I will heal

I am sorry that I want to be near you

it's just that you make me smile

I am sorry that you can no longer love me

and i'm sorry that I can no longer love you either.
