Life Off The Edge
Sitting on my bed with the head down
Life's so poignant, forever I've frowned
Blade in the right, a fisted left
Mind's just curious to witness death
Blood feels heavy, veins feel hard
It was me who called for a no holds barred
The heart is pounding, the mind just choked
In dread of pain, my eyes stiff closed
The time has come for the blade to meet
the hand, as now I clinch my feet
and feel a prick with the slice of the edge
on the skin, the tissues, the veins then bled
A thousand horses racing in my head
as the fear strikes seeing the blood shed
"How can I do this, how can it be?
I won’t run from this life so cowardly"
As I stand and rise, move to the door
Fall face down, smack on the floor
Limbs don’t move, the gasp now halts
Was it the world, were it all my faults?
