It Takes Two

When it takes two
And there’s only you
Trying to fix your relationship
You’re being used
Being abused
This place is not for you
This pain is not for you
It stains your heart
Leaves a mark
Leaves a dark hole inside of you
Keep your head above water,
Don’t let yourself drown
Pull yourself out.
It’s not worth it to scream and shout
Let the water drain
Get out of the rain
You don’t deserve the pain
When it’s too much to handle
Get out of the dark
Find your candle
Keep it burning bright
don’t let it go out
When you’re trying to write lines
And your fists are bruised
Kus you can’t handle all the s***
He put you through
Find the light in the dark
Don’t let yourself drown
No matter how hopeless,
There’s always a way out.

The idea behind the poem is very good. Though the on and off rhyming is a little jolting. Did you mean to do that? That is how EMily Dickinson wrote her poems....

Each poem I write has its own individual rythem and flow, its not really anything I try to do- thts just how I write.
