The Only Way

by *Charisma*   Oct 5, 2007


"Keep running from your demons, and don't look back
It's going to be harder than you think.
No time to wonder about taking another path
If you second guess yourself, you'll sink."

The voices play louder inside of her head
Reminding her it's time to move on.
The choices she made, make her wish she was dead
But this is the way to beat the wrong.

She wants to let her mind wander to his face
And become enraptured by his eyes.
But that kind of thinking's what got her in this place
Above his influence she must rise.

"Keep running from your demons, and don't look back
It's going to be harder than you think.
No time to wonder about taking another path
If you second guess yourself, you'll sink."

She knows she played into his hands for too long.
It is time to take a one-way trip.
The only way to get over where she belongs
Is by getting out from under his grip.

    "above his influence she must rise" <-- oh how i adored that line right there. so much emotion and depth. i thought the flow was a little off in some places but you certainly made up for that with the overall piece. this was a beautiful heartfelt write and i enjoyed every bit of it.

    This has been voted for as a 4 ... INSANITY!

    This isn't just a message direct from the heart of the writer - it (should) touch the heart of every single reader! This is about more than a single person .. this is a message to everyone that has been in a relationship that they shouldn't be in or couldn't get out of! I changed all the his to her etc.. for obvious reasons. This poem resonates in the very core of anyone who's wanted out of a relationship.
