A poem about someone leaving a bad relationship before it's too late.
Turn Around

Lost and losing control.

How much longer do I play this role?

All is fine, a smile on my face.

How long do I stay in this unhappy place?

I live my life only through you.

Shadows of who I want to be block my view.

I feel so attached to you, afraid to walk away.

But at the same time I know I can't stay.

I'm not sure where we went from good to bad.

I'm not sure where you went from happy to mad.

I can't continue to be the object of your anger and pain.

Sooner or later it will drive me insane.

I have to leave now and this time I won't turn around.

I have to save myself while myself can still be found.
