This poem tells the story of a woman who struggles with letting go of an abusive relationship because she doesn't think she can live without her significant other.

I try to find my way around the never ending tears,
To tell myself I love you is succumbing to my fears.
And now this life before you is a distant memory,
So a future with an absent you is something I cant see.
But I'm losing all my soul to this demon deep within,
The battle that i'm fighting is something I can't win.
But what is this war that I am pinning to your name?
Though you've wounded me so deep, you are not the one to blame.
For I keep letting you back in this heart I call my home,
You entered & you wiped your feet on everything I own.
I should've known much better than to let you in again,
You've brought these weapons times before, I should have set an end.
So you are not the one that my problems stemming from,
Until I set you free, I know my peace will never come.
It's time to let it out and face this unforgiven part,
That the demon that I fight with isn't you, but my own heart.
