Love Shouldn't Hurt

I had the chance to leave.

I could have been free, to never be hurt again.

So young, so dumb, I stayed and it begin.

I spent my life loving you, since we were kids.

You swore to protect me, but you never did.

It started with a push, a shove.

It turned into more, what happened to love?

Going to school with bruises, cuts, scrapes.

Excuse after excuse I told my teachers and friends.

After you choked me, I stayed.

After you punched me, I stayed.

After you broke my back, I stayed.

Love? It was one sided.

At 21, I've seen my life flash before my eyes more times then I know.

What happened? What did I do?

All I do is cry over you.

I told myself, it wont happen again.

I was wrong.

I want to be free, I want to live.

I want to be happy.

I will be happy.

I am strong.

You're now gone, I am free.

To live my life, the way it should be.

Love shouldn't hurt, neither should I.

So, farewell my dear, I am finally free to fly.

I like this poem it talks about that Love Shouldn't hurt, but as a human being we are tend to get hurt.
