Something that's been on my mind constantly for so long, I just thought I would write something about it. It doesn't rhyme, I know, but I haven' written I non-rhyming poem in a while, so I just thought I would.

I cried,

You hugged me,

And told me everything was all right.

I was so young,

And you kept me safe.

You and I were best friends,

Untill he came along.

At first he and I were close,

Closer than you and I had been.

But then he realized what he could do,

And he started winning over your love.

He became everything you had ever wanted,

And filled in the places I left blank.

He was perfect in your eyes,

And always stood in the spootlight.

You helped him move forward,

And forgot about me.

He succeeded,

And I fell behind.

And just when I thought things couldn't get worse,

He descover he held even more power.

He started framing me for his few mistakes,

And I just took the blame.

He started abusing me,

In more than one way.

His blows hurt,

But his words hurt me more.

He says he loves me,

But why does he do this to me?

He acts different when you're around.

He acts like the saint you think he is.

But when you leave,

His darker side shows through.

You're the only one,

Who holds the power to stop him.

But do you?

No.

I've tried to tell you,

I try to call out for help,

But you ignore my cries.

Is it merely because I'm a failure,

Or because you love him more?

If only you knew,

What happens behind your back.
