Leaving An Abusive Relationship Poem

This poem was written when I was in a very dark place. I just broke up with my boyfriend of almost 4 years, after a very long and painful journey to self discovery.

Scared, confused, mindless clone,
Delving deeper into the unknown,
My heart is bruised, my soul crumbled.
The deep despair of lovers rumbled.

Control, abuse, delete, forget,
Feelings once shared are now reset.
The chains you hold are now released.
My soul is free, my mind deceased.

What once was hate is now empowered
For this empty shell to be devoured.
Your need for me has been replaced,
My thoughts of you have been disgraced.

The time has come to change the pace
Look ahead, erase, embrace
The change has come upon my sorrow
The tears will wait until tomorrow.

I am in a dreadful situation, too. I am in love with a guy. It has been 4 years now, but I can't marry him, not now, not ever. His family and mine are against our marriage, but I can't stop loving him. He's also controlling, and now I'm sick and tired of him, but I can't leave him. I love him too much.
