I Didn't Belong

You held both of my hands in one of yours
As if forcing me to pray
To a god I don't believe in
While putting me in my place
In a world I don't belong too

You held me broken at night
After breaking me
Forced me to feel loved,
After you hand fed me hate.
In a relationship I didn’t belong in

You dragged me down with you
As your heart decomposed
And forced me to pick up the pieces
Pieces that never should have belonged together
In a heart I didn’t belong in

You screamed and shouted
Wanting a better tomorrow
Blaming me as if I can control the universe
Yet this whole time you were convinced that you
Could control me, with a title I didn’t belong too.

A very powerful poem with a great message. Many people are forced to follow or do something they do not feel obligated to.

I completely agree! I love writing poems that are relatable to others so they know that they are never alone in anything that they go through. :)
