By And By - Poem by amanda williams

slice by slice
cut by cut
ive closed this door so leave it shut

day by day
life by life
why wont you just let me
have one more slice

on my wrist
on my throat
i have nothing
left to care about

one slice here
one slice there
tell me are these
more than you can bare

do you want to see
would you like to see
just sit there and watch me bleed


your words hurt
your words can kill
so let us make you happy
let us do our will

slice by slice
cut by cut
life by life
day by day
shut by shut

    I wonder at the way you are thinking. Is this your feelings or are you writing in the third person.. You give the feeling of being in another world. Lost and fed up.
    Is this what you wanted to portray?
