I made a mistake
I have
Nothing better

Except I’m

I feel sick
When I think
About what

The promise
I broke

So I’m
Swallowing my
Dignity saying
I'm ashamed
Of my
Actions and
Didn’t mean
To hurt

    I, as the reader, don't know the details of this, and it's almost reverent in a way. You sharing this apology and the acknowledgement of that mistake and broken promise, yet only you and this person sharing the truth of it and the deeper meaning.

    I liked the style of only one or two words per line. It emphasized your emotions perfectly.
