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

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
