I Hate....(2001)

I hate to see you stand so strong
And yet so far away
I hate to meet the eyes I love
when I want so much to stay
I hate when you tell me things
You never knew to show
I hate when you turn to leave
Without ever saying hello

I hate the way I found comfort
Knowing you couldn't care
I hate the way I've needed to live
'Upon a wing and prayer
I hate the looks that come
From people who just don't see
I hate the looks upon my face
Knowing we can not be

I hate the sleepless nights
and the dawns I can't share with you
I Hate the way I feel inside
Without being near to you
I hate the anger flooding me
You touched off with a spark
I hate remembering the person
I grew to know by heart

In the end, all I hate is all I love, my dear
Were that I was Blind to my heart
And did not feel the gems of emotion
Living deep inside of me
For my dear one, you couldn't return
And I am alone to face what lies ahead

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I rented the movie '10 things I hate about you' and then I mimicked the style of the poem read in English class. I meet a lot of people in my life. My hubby was always the right one, but my first true mistake murdered him so we wouldn't have offspring together when his sister was jealous of my marriage because she had a thing for me and I didn't for her. I wrote this four years after he was killed in my husband's handwriting.

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
