I'll have to apologize,
I'll need to explain.
I've let something slip too long
& there it is,
inflated with potential
climbing away from me
up & over clouds
as the string slides through my fingers,
nothing as my excuse,
Sorry I did nothing about this!
I took so long
because it got increasingly awkward
to think about how much time passed.
I'd rather forget I'm accountable
& watch wasted breaths
