You try to hurt me with your vicious words,
Sayings that are not repeated.
You push me up against the wall,
Yet I am not defeated.

I tell no one of the abuse;
My thoughts are now in silence.
I try my hardest to defend myself;
Yet I can’t escape the violence.

No matter how hard I try to impress you;
My efforts are all in vain.
No matter how fast I run-
I can’t escape the pain. 

You blame everyone else for your torment;
Then you can’t look in the mirror.
I tried to point it out to you-
But I can’t be any clearer. 

My vision is all cloudy now-
From tears threatening to fall;
Why we were even fighting-
I can’t seem to recall.

The cycle of hate continues- 
As evil need not rest.
I try to help as well as I can;
But you think that you know best.

    I hate long poems, but that's me. Why say something in two when you can just use one...but back to the subject at hand. You write a "mean" word-- the way it rhymes in all-- I like it. I don't know from from this poem, though, if you were in such a bad relationship...or maybe a friend was. But I hope you got out of it. I've seen people like this person-- it's like "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde". If they're a family member, it's even worse... Don't go there.
