As I Watch The World Go...

He left me bare and empty,
Lost in my own pain.
I don't know what I'm doing,
I just may be insane.

Empty tears stream down my face,
I clutch the knife in hand.
Thinking only of my pain,
I can barely stand.

I try to hold my feelings in,
I try to be strong.
I cry out int the dark night,
'What did I do wrong! ?

Why has he gone and left me,
To die here all alone?
What happened to our happiness?
I thought our love had grown.'

I listen to the silence,
Pray for a reply.
In vain, I listen quietly,
I feel that I must try.

Burning tears pour down my cheeks,
I choke on my own breath,
My grip tightens on the knife,
I have my mind set.

I slash the blade across my wrists,
The blood begins to flow.
Searing pain burns in my flesh,
As I watch the world go...
