The Threshold

Now you’ve gone and done it
Passed my threshold of pain
You kept pushing that fine line
Close to driving me insane!

You’ve really gone too far now
There’s only so much I can take
You think I am made of steel
But I’m almost going to break

And so you push the limits
Wonder when I’ll start to bleed 
You like to see me grovel
To be sure that I’m in need

It’s your way of confirming
Your importance in my life
So you dare to cross that line
Your words cutting like a knife

You watch as I writhe in pain
Confident about your state
Now you want to backtrack, boy
But my darling, it’s too late

You crossed my threshold of pain
The attack has left me numb
I sincerely assure you
Your attention ploy was dumb.

So, I’ll bid you adieu, boy
It’s so sad you’ll never be
Passed the threshold of my love
That reaches eternity.
