~Verse 1~

I’m so afraid to move around you,
I’m walking on thin ice.
Everything I say to you,
Seems to spark some sort of fight.

I don’t know if I should stay or go,
I’m scared of what you’d do;
But I can’t take this anymore,
This abuse coming from you.


I need to let you go.
I need to move on.
My heart can’t break anymore,
And my body’s broken down.

I need to run away.
I need to escape.
The yelling, beating, screaming at me,
Is more than I can take.

~Verse 2~

I’ve made my decision,
And I won’t be beaten down by you.
This is last time we say goodnight,
There is no goodnight kiss.

Don’t act like you’re so surprised;
You brought this on yourself.
Next time you go to slap someone,
You should stop and think.

~Chorus x2 to end. Fade it out~

This piece I wrote about an abusive relationship I had escaped from. Yes, I used the word escaped. It's the only word I can use that describes how I got out of it. PLEASE don't let it happen to you. It hurts more emotionally than it does physically. <3
Love you guys.
