on the threshold of a dream
There was a time I thought I mattered
Every dream has now been shattered
Each hope lies severely battered
And breathing still goes on.
I never thought I'd be your wife
But counted on a friend for life
Fantasy succumbs to reality's knife
And I am all alone.
There are those who mock and gloat,
Say anything to get my goat
(Not knowing they sail this same boat
Whatever they believe.)
A slutty precedent they're setting
They want you too, (but they're not getting!)
I've searched for strength but now I'm letting
Go, giving up to grief.
I can't keep enduring this pain
I'm off to find a friendly train
That'll end at last this sad refrain
And give, at last, relief.
