Abuse


Abuse 3-6-08
Abuse is all around me
Abuse is what I used to get
Abuse is when you used me

Abuse is thinking about you everyday
Abuse is what ill do
I'll abuse alcohol and Drugs
If I can't stop thinking about the Abuse you gave me
everyday without love

I'll abuse myself and people around me
The way I torture myself thinking about the things i can't change

Abuse is in the world
I became it's victim
Tearing apart families
And their homes

I can see it in your eyes as you walk past me in the halls
I an see the tears in your eyes
That your holding back
I can see the bruises on your arm
You try to hide them from the world
But I can still see them
I wish I could take your pain away

Abuse is all I see when I look at you
Abuse is on Tv and In movies too
Abuse is on the Radio and in our Brains

It is blood and it drives me Insane

    your poem is so true. i can relate. but, abuse ain't everywhere. sure it's on tv and movies. but, not all of them. and not everyone gets abused. only some people get abused. some people... like me. (Report) Reply

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
