Poem: I Think I'm Being Used

Sometimes when your dating someone you feel like you're being used. But it can be difficult to talk to the other person about this! What if they said yes? Words don't always come easy in complicated relationship situations and when you're afraid of being hurt...

I wish I could find the words

To tell you how I feel

There is so much I want to say

But I don't know where to start

There is a thousand questions

That I'd like to ask

But I fear

The answers might not be

What I want to hear

So I stay quiet

Like there's nothing on my mind

But the less I open up

The more I find myself confused

It leaves me lost and lonely

I think I'm being used.

There is a lot I need to know

To help me understand

To find the truth

The hardest task

Is how to learn, how to ask.

Hi Bella, Thankyou so much for your lovely comment and insight into love and relationships. I agree with you. I wrote this poem when I was in a relationship from the past. I am still looking for my true love ;)

I am sorry to hear this stricktly being used in any way is never fun especially when your love is being taken for granted that is no fun at all. But if you have to stay quiet and there is room for doubt and you are with fear of what the response maybe then maybe you shouldn't be there or whom ever you speak of in this piece. One should be abel to communicate without fear of anything isn't there a phrase that reads "love fearlessly" Well I hope you find the answers you are in search for and everything works itself out in your best interest or whom ever it may be. Best wishes

Here's one for you

If you choose me

you can use me,

but, don't abuse me

cuz you'll lose me.

We are all being used for something by somebody and everybody. but, when it comes to being abused by those people it's time to get out. If you are being hurt, remove yourself from the situation. this includes, friends, family, work, lovers etc. everybody we come in contact with uses us for some purpose to their benefit. Think about it. Bech

From my experience, if you feel you're being used, you probably are!

Aw, this is a nice poem. There is nothing worse than the worry that we are - as women - being used by someone. There is insecurity there, and uncertainty. But there is always our "self-awareness" and sense of self. Our sense of what we are worth. It tells us things about how others view us. Some honest thoughts expressed here! You are a good poet. I hope in the intervening time since it was written, that you have found answers to some of the questions. : )
