Breaking Up 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.
