But I Can't Say When
A Poem by Jim Nasium

Things between us can't worse at this point
there's nothing more they can do
they did their best but never the less
I managed to hold on and get though
it's always darkest before the dawn
this is now and that was then
I think things will get better for me
but I can't say when

Stuck alone in Limbo
not getting anywhere
three steps forward and two steps back
some how just don't seem fair
stuck between a rock and a hard place
I refuse to borrow or lend
things got to get better soon
but I can't say when

I'm getting worse by the day
yet none of them even care
I was only important to them
as long as I was willing to share
when I couldn't give no more
they took because they can
things have got to get better
but I can't say when

A sharp reoccurring pain
that feels a lot like a burn
when ever I go to walk or stand
try to twist or turn
tired, weak and pencil thin
I'll never be the same again
I know my time's at hand
but I can't say when

His words tells me very clearly
He'll never give me more than I can take
well either He flatters me
or else He made a mistake
I just can't take any more
betrayed by family and friend
I think I'm ready to give up
but I can't say when...
