A Second Chance
I take a deep breath,
and place the knife against my throat,
standing just a foot away,
from the letter that I wrote.

I feel a tiny tear,
trickle down my face,
as I press the knife deeper,
my death I'm about to embrace.

All of a sudden the phone rings,
it's most annoying sound,
now knowing what else to do,
I place the knife on the ground.

I then pick up the receiver,
and am amazed to hear your voice,
all of a sudden I realize,
I have another choice.

I finish talking to you,
with a smile on my face,
and then I turn towards the knife,
throwing it away in disgrace.

You gave me a second change,
and I cannot thank you enough,
for coming to my rescue,
when the world just looked to tough.

For giving me back my life,
without any questions to ask,
and for continuing to love me,
even without the mask.
Author's Notes:
This was written about four years ago.
It was about a month after a horrible break up with this guy named Joel.
I thought I was in love with him, but it was just one sided.
This guy, who today is my boyfriend and has been for almost four years.
Came to me in my time of need, comforted me and cared for me.
He let me cry to him on the phone, since distance was a huge issue for us at the time.
I knew, I had a second chance at life and love.
I had my heart broken and Josh was there to mend it back to being whole.
He's done a good damn job of it too. ^^;
