I am still here

Why did I become this way? This is not how it’s supposed to be What made me want to stay Why can’t I seem to leave? I know I could find someone who treats me right Sometimes I feel like I’m a step away from shutting the door and running Far far out of sight But the door doesn’t shut all the way And running will only get me so far I’ll tell myself it’ll be okay That he will cause me no more harm But I feel his fists again The blows What did I do this time? Only God knows. The words echo in my ear You can’t run from me “I’m always here.” So if you ask me why I never seem to leave I want you to know that I did but he found me.
