I'm Tired

I'm tired of living this horrible life,
I'm tired of being controlled.
I'm tired of being told to sit tight,
I'm tired of missing my chance to glow.

I'm tired of you telling me what to say,
I'm tired of the hatred you put in my heart.
I'm tired of the lies you directr my way,
I'm tired of you tearing me apart.

I'm tired of the way you make me feel,
I'm tired of keeping it inside.
I'm tired of the the pleasure that you steal,
I'm tired of the anguish you make me hide.

I'm tired of what you throw at me,
I'm tired of the pain you put me through.
I'm tired of the tears you make me bleed,
I'm tired of the things you make me do.

I'm sick and tired of pleasing you.

this is a poem i wrote of the memories of an abusive relationship the i was in. i got tired of him. i got tired of the hurt, pain, and sexual and emotional abuse. i'm a survivor. and i'm proud of myself now.
