Relationship Poem by Teens

I decided to go out with a guy at my school and we clicked immediately. The second I told him I loved him, though, he started abusing me and we're still together today. As much as I despise the things he does, I'm still crazy in love with him.

Our Typical Day

Everyone comments on how much we're in love,
But they've been caught up in their own issues these past months,
To notice all the insults he's thrown at me,
Or how much I've cried,

Everything changed that very single day,
When I told him I loved him, and he stared me in the eyes,
And told me he loved me too, but what I didn't know,
Is that my love was the beginning to his hate,

Out in public, he brags about me to all his friends,
And we walk hand in hand whenever someone is watching,
When he thinks my friends are looking, he wraps his arm around me,
And smiles before he kisses me,

But when we're alone, he hurls words that pierce my heart,
Everyday he tells me that I'm impossible,
Unbearable, horrible, and no one should care about me,
And he says he loves me, but I'm not blind; I can see the hate,

He's never happy, no matter what I do for him,
He says I'm a failure and I'm holding others back,
I'm crazy and a screw up and will never be good enough,
The screaming hasn't ended, and yet it startles me every time,

And when I thought the words hurt badly enough,
I started feeling the back of his hand across my face,
And every time I see him now,
He darkens my skin with deep, purple welts,

This very second I'm waiting for him to get home,
The yelling will begin as I cry and apologize,
And he'll give me another black eye I'll try to cover up,
Because that's our typical day, no matter what I say.

To the person who wrote this poem, it is okay for you to love the person you are with, but you do not deserve to be treated this way. There are ways you can get help that will keep you safer in the relationship if you really want to stay, and can help you leave if you are ready. I'm not saying you have to leave, because that is your choice. However, I really recommend talking to someone or looking at some of the online resources to get help. You shouldn't have to go through this alone and you shouldn't have to get hurt. Please know that what he does to you, you do not deserve and it is not your fault. There are lots of people who would support you and care about you. Please consider it.
