I Hate You


I hate the way you look at me
I hate how your always right
I hate the way you see me
Mostly in the best of light.

I hate how you always lie
And that you never seem to care
I hate how you see me cry
And hug me when people stare.

I hate it when you say
I'm intelligent and beautiful
I hate it when you warn me about things
And tell me to be careful.

I hate it when you kiss me
For things I never see
I hate how you never see
How strong I can be.

But if there's anything I hate more
The bane of both mine and your existence
It's how I feel protected by you
And that my dear makes all the difference.

    I like this, nicely put together, such a fine line in the emotion that is love/hate and both equally destructive. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
