Breaking Up

Written by: Robyn Blauw

Is my body breaking down?
Is it in such disarray?
What is going on?
Why do I feel this way?

My mind is in such turmoil
Of all things going on
I sit here and I wonder
Do I want to keep going on?

My memories always haunt me
And the tears they come again
My body feels so good to me
Why is it breaking down?

My pass has been a hell hole
And if the future will look dim
I will not want to stay here
To me death is no sin. 

It wouldn’t really take much
To end this misery
Just a bit of rope or hose
Or pills to make me sleep

Then maybe it is nothing
And I’ll tread through life again
Threading oh so carefully
Not trusting where its ends

If I could just now, lie right down
And die just right away
Then peace would take my very soul
I would not feel this way.

If all the world could hurt some less
And people could be true
What a wonderous place for us to be
For all of me and you.
