Revelations in The Rain

The rain falls on my shoulders and
drenches my clothes.
I know I will get a cold
But I don’t care.

I close my eyes
And start to cry
Because nothing ever goes the way it is supposed to.

I know it won’t last forever,
I know karma will get them in the end.
The words they say, the things they do.
Do they know how it affects me?

I thought they were my friends,
For a while I did.
Until about two years ago.

I let them have the power,
I let them control me.
I let them abuse me.

There venom started with a stupid petty thing,
And they dragged me into the deep depths of their whirl wind of drama.
Once I was bitten, I revived.
But once the last bite started to fade, they would bite again.

On and Off, On and Off.
It’s been a week, I wonder when they will strike again.
They were nice today, I was lucky.

I’m a human too
But sometimes I forget that.
I won’t let them hurt me.
Not today, not tomorrow.

It’s about time
I take my life back.

I am in some abusive friendships right now, and I wanted to write a poem about it to get my feelings out. Feel free to comment, but don't be mean. If you don't like it, too bad.
