Then write a scene where one character says sorry to another character, or write a poem where you use anaphora (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anaphora_(rhetoric) with “I am sorry.”
I am sorry that I don’t play the violin
anymore. It’s hard to pull out music
you once enjoyed when we were together.
I am sorry that we aren’t on speaking
terms. I don’t call you and you don’t
call me. I still have your number.
I am sorry that my favorite dessert
is still your grandma’s homemade
strawberry cheesecake. I haven’t
tried to make it myself.
I am sorry that things didn’t work
out between us.
I am sorry that I broke it off
in a way that left you in tears
for a year. I cried too. Several
times. Over the next year
and a half, I couldn’t go out
with someone else.
I am sorry you’ll never read
this poem and realize
it was written for you.
I am sorry.
