Life takes you somewhere, love helps you get there.


Everything seems fine
Two people who couldn't be apart
Was all they saw on the surface
Almost the perfect life
But behind closed doors
Was the complete opposite
You wake up everyday hoping that things will change
Maybe he won't go out and cheat anymore
He hardly says I love you
But always says goodbye

A relationship built on top of lies
He's turned into the opposite of what he said he would be
Every night your left to cry and wonder where he could be
Heartbroken on the inside but on the surface so in love
Stealing from your parents only to make him happy
It only takes one wrong word to set him off

His happiness turns into anger
There is nothing you could possibly do to change him
Controlling everything you do
He goes through your phone
See's something he doesn't like
His solution is a slap in the face
Your so used to something that you don't deserve

A relationship built on top of lies
He's turned into the opposite of what he said he would be
Every night your left to cry and wonder where he could be
Heartbroken on the inside but on the surface so in love
Stealing from your parents only to make him happy
It only takes one wrong word to set him off

You stand there and take it
There is no other choice
You think about your future
All just a blurred picture
At first it wasn't that bad
But the drugs played his every move
Pain and suffering with the tunnel of life seeming dark
Your in so deep it's all you really know

A relationship built on top of lies
He's turned into the opposite of what he said he would be
Every night your left to cry and wonder where he could be
Heartbroken on the inside but on the surface so in love
Stealing from your parents only to make him happy
It only takes one wrong word to set him off

this was very moving and made me cry because seeing it writen down gives me hope that somehow i can get a couple of my friends out of abusive relationships and help them get through it all. thanks for the inspiration

this is so sad that it is true, is it about a relationship you were in?? I loved this, everything about this poem was perfect, so many phrases that stood out to me especially the title "built on top of lies" it's really good! keep writing!!

You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.

Wow, is this true?? It made me open up my eyes to see what people might be dealing with in a relationship. I like,  "your so used to something that you don't deserve"  

Good Job! Keep it Up!
