This Ends With Me

I hold the knife
Over your back
I calm my breath
Just relax

I hold myself steady
On the count of three
Be ready

But then your future life
Flashes through my eyes
Of how you will live
If this part dies

How your eyes will lose
Their luster
And how each step
Will take all the strength
you can muster

How you will become bitter
And cold
Maybe you'll hang your head
And just do what you're told

You'll pass this hurt
From that to the next
And I'll have started this
How many lives down the road
Will i have wrecked?

And now I must ponder
Now I must see
Why this knife
Is even a choice with me?

It happened to me once
Oh, how I'm sure
Everything’s fair in
Love and war

I lunge at you
With these thoughts set
And here starts a choice
I may regret

There's a clatter from
Steel on the floor
You look back to me
And i wonder if I should
Bolt to the door

But instead, I hold tight
My arms around you
Who has not a clue
Of what i just
Intending to do

Now i don’t regret this
Simple action
That says something deep
"I'm here for you"

This stops now
This stops with me
A murderer is not
Who i choose to be

That knife in the back
We all have felt
Is that really the card
Life was supposed to have dealt
Shuffle the deck once
Or twice
Drop the knife
Just relax

Learning and losing
Are hard enough
Without having to
Our backs

This was actually one of the best poems i have ever read. it actually told a true story too which is what really connected to me i guess? but all in all great work i hope to see more in the future.
