Shame

I’ve said too much.
I went too far.
It’s too late now.
I can’t take back
the things I’ve already done.
I know it falls short
to tell you I’m sorry,
but here’s the words
insufficient though they may be.
I’m sorry.
I’ll try harder
so that one day
when I look in the mirror
I’ll feel more than
shame.

Prompt: Shame
