constant sorrow
if you'll take my hand
i'll show you the way
just me a chance
to be your savior
and end your pain
i'll whisper softly all the things
you're yearning to hear
kiss your lips and touch your skin
bring out the passion
that is trapped within
i'll pull you closer and hold you near
take away the pain and all your fear
yet that's not good enough
that's all i hear
find your own way out
of the hell you're in
reality of it all
it's not worth fighting for
i can't save you from yourself
the mistakes you repeatedly make
the end is clear
it's only natural
the heartache and pain you'll bare
so save the tears
because you'll be back there
you steadily complain
you want a love that doesn't cause so much pain
but yet you keep running back to him
nothing changed
so excuse me if i say
the shit is played out
i have no sympathy for you
all is left is the simple words of truth
stupidity is no excuse
he'll walk all over you
yet you'll stand up and defend him
as he slaps you
you'll plead and make peace
making yourself believe
he only does this
because he loves me
maybe one day soon
you'll open your eyes
hopefully...
realize this isn't the love you wanted in life

So very true. I liked this very much for I have a friend and had friends that went through this crap with an abuser. Then they would come to me and cry, using the same excuse. "He hits me because he loves me". Like yourself here I finally had to give them some tough love and tell them that this is not the love you need or deserve. (See my poem "The Man That You Deserve") And that your parents did not want you to have a love like this. Good job here!
