Standing On The Edge.

This stress is more than maybe I can bear.
 I am beginning to see Life truly is not fair.
Those baby cow eyes looking back at me.
 A weight I feel in my soul so significantly.

My mind is in such a state of disarray.
 It is days like today that I look up and say,
One more pea on my plate, is all it will take.
 Just one more pea, and the stupid thing will break.
Mental strife and I'm yelling at yours truly.
  "Shut up, just shut up!", very cruelly.
How did I end up on this mental ledge?
 Pushing myself further from the edge.

Its those sweet nothings you whispered in my ear.
 I gave way letting go of all my bottled up fear.
Maybe I should have held on just for a little while.
 Instead I fell in love with your tantalizing smile.

So now here I sit on the corner of heartache and despair.
 Thinking I know never should have even been there.
I guess I learned my lesson and I'll just go from here.
 Take care in this life and I hope you're happy dear.

    I really dig this strong poem. I read through the inner angst, yearning etc with a real easy flow. Well done. I am going through older posts of poets that I haven't read yet. This is superb poetry for sure. Chris.
