Take Your Knife Back

Poetry By: XxXLoVeBuGxXx
Young adult

Being betrayed is a pain greater than the knife itself.

I feel so sick, right now.

But I keep writing down my feelings,

Splattering tears on my bed sheets.

I keep a razor near by,

Just in case you cross my mind.

Please, take your knife out of my back,

So I can lie down

And go to sleep,

Maybe even forget the pain,

Only if I'm lucky.

Should I feel so much misery

In this state,

In this hole,

That I dug for myself?

Getting stabbed in the back by you,

Was the last thing I wanted to do.

I put so much trust into you,

I had so much faith in you,

I believed in everything you sang.

But, baby, what happened?

Your knife is so deep,

Blood is gushing out of my mouth.

Now, please, remove the wretched weapon,

But only for the moment,

Then, you'll stick it right back in again.

And all I can do

Is smile and say, "Thank You."

I feel so sick, right now.

Please, let me lie down

And go to sleep.
