Watch Me Burn

Watch Me Burn

This poem was inspired by Eminem's duet with Rihanna, LOVE THE WAY YOU LIE. After you read this poem, you can listen to the video located on my post, Break the Chains of Abuse, here.

Watch Me Burn
By Nomar Knight

Stand and watch me burn
You said I'll never learn
I ran off to get away from you
Not realizing I would pay dues

He dazzled me with his lies
And now I'm paying the price
A back slap here pulled hair there
Fattened lip and no one cares

I called the cops thinking I'd be free
Seeing him in chains and beggin' me
Ate my heart with a guilt trip
Can't have my man's dignity stripped

See you watch me burn
Sooner or later I will learn
But you don't understand
Love hurts and he's my man

He promised never again
Would he touch my bruised skin
Melted my will with sad eyes
Thinking this time no more lies

But after a few days I messed up
Pissed him off breaking his cup
Before I could run and hide
He took me down hell's ride

You stand over me in tears
Worn down from all those years
My corpse in ashes I never learned
Last time you'll watch me burn

    Great poem, Nomar!


  2. Thanks Blaze and Eri. It's a sad truth. You're right Blaze. There's no valid reason.
