A Cry For Help
Bathurst, New South Wales
There’s a great big hole where my heart used to be
Because the world that I knew has crashed down around me,
When she stated that night that she just wanted out
I could not comprehend what it was all about.
Another man turned my life upside-down
Took my love, took my life without even a sound,
Now I sit and I wonder why wasn’t I told?
By someone who had seen what was to unfold
I drink my grog, I can’t eat, I just feel so cold.
Were our vows not worth keeping?
When did she kill trust?
Why did she exchange my love for her lust?
She has gouged out my heart and ground it to dust.
I am drowning in tears and seem too tired to swim
Life is filled with my grief and my future looks grim,
I am angry with her, but more angry with him
My body seems heavy, my sanity slim.
He has taken my love, my home and my wife
It’s goodbye, yes goodbye, like a cut from a knife,
To my head and my heart, it’s goodbye to my life
Farewell and Goodbye.
Bio: AA Anderson says, I have seen this happen to both men and women and far too often these days. Also unfortunately to my own son, it is heartbreaking and divides families. A poem from the theme ‘Goodbye’ started by our narrator writers.
