This poem is by "HippieMan"


How can you do this to me?
You are all I have left, Youve kept me alive
But now you could be what destroys me
Your talking, thinking, acting like I would
I know what I do to myself, Dont put yourself through it
I wish I could go back to how you are now
You can still change, Its too late for me
But you can save yourself, Even if I cant
Dont start what I do, you will regret it
You dont know what Im talking about now, But you will
You will wish you had listened to me, Stopped yourself
You dont want to be this way, You dont need to be this way
Please hear me, And reailize this is not you
You have put this on me, And its too much
I cant take it all in right now, But I cant sheild myself
Im scared I will do something, That could be prevented
You can push me over the edge, Into the sea of hell
You can keep me from going to those seas of hell
You have the power to determine my life
My life lies in your hands, But I am scared
I know how it will be, One of us goes, Both of us do
Who will crack first, But more, Will you use it
Will you use this, And push me over the edge so you can go too
Are you that fargone or just think so
You are basing yourself on me
If you realize it
You are becoming what I am
You look at how I think, and think that way too
But its not me making these decisions
Its you
