I’m running.

But he is following.

I’m hiding.

But he will always find me.

I’m bruising.

But he doesn’t care.

I’m begging.

But he never listens.

I’m fighting.

But he holds me back.

I’m dying by choice.

But still under his whip.

Even though my life he has taken, it’s still not good enough for him.
He will always want more, he will always seem sweet.

But he’s not.

He’ll promise you love and take hold your soft hand, you think he’ll reach the heavens.

But he’s a malefic man.

    Cool use of spacing and bold. Very simple but still well written. On the double line near the end ‘its’ should be ’it’s’. I’m also not sure that you need that first comma on the same line. I would also change ‘listened’ to ‘listens’ so that you keep the tense constant.

    Thanks for teaching me a new word =). Well written.

    It is simple and elegant for what topic it covers! That is a juxtaposition that makes this piece stronger.

    Why thank you! All of you! When I first started writing this poem I was hoping that maybe my writing would finally be recognized. I’ve tried so hard to get up to the point where people like my stories that this is absolutely splendid!
