The poem is below.



I look at you while my eyes run over 
I try so hard to get you to understand 
I am human not a beast 
But that don't matter to you , this I can see
you get so unhappy if i'm having a good day
you say things that will bring my spirit down 
that makes you so happy when I am sad 
Oh, how this makes me mad
you love to see me get out of my mind
you love playing your head games all the time
I know you don't love me , 
but you don't won't to let me be
because you don't want some to love me
Don't you ever get tired of seeing me bleed
Why do you want to hurt me?
What have I ever done to you ?
to make you so hateful you want to abuse
Don't you ever get tired of hurting me?
when I ask you a question
you would walk away with a smile on your face
you are to me a disgrace
but when I tell you I want you to go 
you act hard and left 
But then you keep asking for me to take you back
I know you had lost your mind
I know someone has hurt you long ago
but that wasn't me 
so let me be free from you 
you keep trying to make me pay the price 
you give me the painful revenge
I know we don't need each other 
all this bring is sorrow 
I want to see a tomorrow 
without you in my life
you don't need me this anyone can see
but you don't want to let me be
because you love hurting me
you love to watch me bleed
you're something from a nightmare 
you never play fair
you have abused my soul 
and I want you to let me go.
