Don't Go

You have one foot in,
And one foot out of my life.
You’re crossing a thin line.

It's not right for you to walk away.
What did I do?
What did I say?

Can't you see what you’re doing to me?
I'm sitting here with a pool of tears.
With such agony and despair,
I start to say good-bye.
But for my soul, it's too much to bear.

I become lost in a daze,
As I watch you start to move.
Are you going to walk away?
Or will you stay?

With each passing second,
My heart starts to break.
It's becoming too heavy,
It's too much to take.

I can't breath.
I fall to the floor,
As my eyes start to close,
You walk out the door.

Yeah...awesome, awesome poem. I know it's hard to write stuff you've felt or that you're feeling. Thank you for putting yourself out there so we could read this. :)

You're welcome. I guess. 

I'm sorry that you had to go through that. The better poems, I've found, are about real stuff...they make you think the most, but they're also the hardest to read. And write, in some cases. They also make you say "ouch".
