Off My Game

You got me off my game

Caught me at the right time

Made me blow my top

Made me lose my cool

Got me to be impatient

Got me to act like a fool

Got me up to do your job

So you can take it easy



Made me forget who I was

Made me forget I’m saved

I’m born again, I’m Christian

Made me lose my faith

For just that one instant, one minute

Got me looking over my shoulder

Had me wondering, waiting

What you had to say next



Got me scared of you

Let you put me in a corner

Got me stressing out

Got me ready to lose everything

Ready to hit something or someone

Ready to break something or someone

Got me cussing for

The first time in 3 years



Had me freaking out

Had me in panic mode

Got me to the point where I

Can’t sleep while you can

Got me plotting revenge

Got me complaining and whining

Got me looking at you hard

Cutting my eyes like a murderer



Yeah, you got my attention

I remember your full name

Got me hating seeing your face

Made my blood boil in its capacity

Got me in tears

You broke me down

To where I’m on my knees

Calling God for help


I thank you for this

I forgive you in this

I’m showing mercy to you

As I walk away with my peace

Intact, not shaken

I know myself

God placed you here

To be the elixir I needed to change

Good, but it kind of runs on at some points. It should be shorter.

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
