Comfortably Numb

i know what you know i know one of us has to go one of us has to become an ex-resident and that takes precedent we used to be able to calmly speak but your pummelling of my body left me weak restraining orders meant nothing to you so you just kept up doing the horrid things you do well i'm finally rid of you and my life is going well and everyday i pray you'll end up in hell treading water in the lake of fire you, a woman beater and prolific liar Why I can't move,I'm just suffocating Why evoke negative feelings in me Why fill me with hope Were you seeking some attention? Why I can't move I'm just suffocating Why evoke negative feelings in me Why fill me with hope Were you seeking some attention? I don't where I'm going I just feel like walking Never looking back Why do you generate this power over me? Don't change your criticism into request Why put my heart's feelings to a test? Now i don't know where I belong Or if i belong......... Do i just want to be gone? Were you so oblivious and blind Your words of sorry are hard to digest Why did you get to be the only one deciding? Tears start flowing from my eyes I don't know how to stay strong I just feel like I'm loosing all control All i know is my head wont stop pounding. My heart hurts Im numb Was i your obsession to ease your depression Was it was all a lie? Nothing but wasted time Why does it hurt so much? I just want to know why?

    Two strong poems on such a horrible topic. Of the two, the second shared more me.
