At the End of the Sky

pizap.com10.081599134951829911399982829026I have been to the end of the Earth.

I have been to the end of the waters.

I have been to the end of the sky.

I have been to the end of the mountains.

I have found none that are not my friends.

It Don’t Take Much

Load him up, so you can break him

Tie him down, so he can’t run

Pile it on, so you can take him

Then give him up, he ain’t the one

 

It don’t take much to break down a broken man

It don’t take much to tear up his life

It don’t take much to break down a broken man

Just load him up with work and strife

 

Show him hope, he’ll believe again

Spin him round to face the sun

Break his dreams, make him grieve again

Chain his heart, you’ve just begun

 

Take him down, down to misery

Bleed him dry, no chance for fun

That’s just life, folks all agree

Take it all, don’t leave him none

 

It don’t take much to break down a broken man

It don’t take much to tear up his life

It don’t take much to break down a broken man

Just load him up with work and strife

About Nya Rawlyns

Nya Rawlyns doesn’t write typical romance. She writes emotion as a contact sport, rough and often raw. It need not be pleasant, heart-warming or forever after. What she seeks is what lies beneath—a dance of extremes, the intersect of need and desire, and the compromises we make when pain and pleasure become indistinguishable. ***** She has lived in the country and on a sailboat on the Chesapeake Bay, earned more than 1000 miles in competitive trail and endurance racing, taught Political Science to unwilling freshmen, and found an avocation in materials science. ***** When she isn’t tending to her garden or the horses, the cats, or three pervert parakeets, she can be found day dreaming and listening to the voices in her head.
