Fictional poem written only for this contest. 

I have wronged you, my love and need to be redeemed. 
For our bright light has dimmed, this is not as I dreamed. 
          So I shall linger in lavender fields thinking of an apology 
          to make you realize how much you really mean to me. 
I shall beg, plead and say sorry for the pain I have schemed,
         and be the wife that you always longed for me to be. 

          I crave redemption for my transgressions devoid of hope, 
          I have learned my lesson after seeing you dreadfully cope. 
Please hear my vindication and bestow forgiving grace
so that we may come together and once again embrace. 
          When I noticed I caused you to fall down that slippery slope, 
I realized how my actions and words made you need your space. 

          So I wander this wilderness alone, though I made a mistake-
          I’m truly sorry, my sweet…for opening your heart to break.
