If I ever said I’m sorry

If I ever said I’m sorry -I meant it- I hope you believed me

I speak mostly when I don’t need to

I say mostly what I don’t mean to

With thine own tongue I burn what I need build

A recluse those that loved I told leave

Because I can’t stand to chance

Selfish is the difference between me and you

Selfish keeps me small turned me old and grey clutching to what I couldn’t share
