Someone landed on this blog after googling for “sorry for affair poems“. Ah, someone’s had an affair and now is resorting to finding a suitable poem to apologize with. I am afraid my poems are way too cynical for such lofty purposes. However, one wonders, what exactly was this person searching for. Though affair obviously has a wide range of meanings, I can only thing of the amorous kinds right now.
1. This person is sorry about having an affair, and hence want to mollify the person he or she is probably in a relationship with. (Bleedin’ obvious, I know.)
2. Person X decided to have an affair, and made a bad choice – let’s say Person Y. The said Person Y lacked passion, time or suitable inclination. Or became too clingy. Person X googled for the phrase attempting to pacify their own heart. (What, you don’t read poetry to tide over a certain mood?)
3. Person X decided to ask Person Z to have an affair with him or her. Person Z, who didn’t want to do a very harsh job of rejecting the affair-seeker, wanted to send a poem that said, Sorry babe/ dude, no affair possibility.
4. A person wrote a poem about having a torrid affair, and the poem wasn’t really appreciated. This person is trying to figure out how other affair-poetry-writers manage to get out of murky situations.
None of these circumstances appear particularly pleasant. Whoever you are, I hope you find the right poem. Ahem, but if you did cheat on someone, a poem isn’t really going to the trick. I think.
