At My Limit


Here I am,
Lost in utter confusion,
Down on my knees,
Head hung,
With a puddle of blood below me.

She wouldn't listen;
I told her day and night;
She chose her fate.
I couldn't live with her anymore;
She burnt her bridges with me.
I'm all used up,
And it all because of her;
I couldn't take it no more.

Now she's in another man's arms,
And me,
Well let's just say,
This blood didn't come from nowhere,
Yes that's right;
The blood beneath me is my own;
I can't live without her,
But seeing her smile kills me,
So I'm leaving now,
And leaving nothing,
But my body in a pool of blood.

My vision is blurring,
My breaths are becoming shorter,
I'm losing feeling all over;
I guess this is it;
I hope she knows that this,
This was for her,
I'm doing this for her,
I'm dying for her,
Oh yeah,
One more thing before I go.

I really do love her.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
