Elizabeth Castleberry

I Hate Myself

I hate that you fooled me
With your infectios smile

I hate that you told me you loved me
When you were lying all the while

I hate that you were so jealous
When he was just a friend

I hate that you turned this
Into something we cannot mend

I hate that we screwed this up
Past the point of no return

I hate that you never believed me
Trust is something you should learn

I hate that you ignore me now
As if we never were

I hate that you betrayed me
For my pain there is no cure

I hate that you broke my heart
You don't know what I've been through

But most of all
I hate myself for letting you

    That's a lot of HATE!
    To me...hate takes up way too much of my energy...conversely LOVE empowers me.
    I hope this was not the guy you danced with in your other poem.

    you have to earn trust as well as learn it-also hate the prson who made you feel those things not yourself, feeling is innocence, once you lose that you might as well be dead. (Report) Reply
