Little poem about dysfunctional relationships where co-dependency has crept into the equation.
What would you like me to say?
Do you want me to go or should I stay?
Tell me because I don’t see into minds
And I can’t always read between the lines
So just tell me what it is you need me to do
And I swear I'll see it through
But what I cannot handle is all this silence
Is this punishment? Or recompense for some unintentional offence?
If so please tell me what I have done so blindly?
For you to treat me so unkindly
You and I seem bound together
For always and for never
Know that I would give anything to be free
Of this hold you have over me
But I guess I am just too weak
To find the freedom I so desperately seek
Why can’t I seem to let you go?
After all this time I have nothing real to show
Except for these emotional scars
And these figurative prison bars
