In a place so dark, so deep.
Where only the minds of the irrational sleep 
There is only one certainty,
That love wasn’t meant for me.

Tears of helplessness fall in the night.
Like daggers in the eye, to rid you of sight.
Loving a man who doesn’t see,
His fire is slowly burning me.

Eyes that show a woman defeated,
Smiles that mask a heart mistreated.
So many loved ones unaware of what they see,
That hell on earth is the fate for me.

Escape is a choice I can not make.
Defence is a battle I can not wake.
Tied to this torture I must be,
As walking alone wasn’t meant for me.

You have certainly captured a feeling of helplessness, here. There is a good flow to your poem. I have survived an abusive relationship and escaped, so this poem truly spoke to me on a personal level. I chose to leave, became strong, lived alone for a some time. We can overcome. Alone can be good... BETTER. Thank you for entering your poem and if this is a true story, please, please, consider leaving him. We are capable of more than we thought possible. Cyndi
