I love to hate


I love the way you do your hair I love the way you smile
I love the way you make me laugh every moment worthwhile

I love the way you write your poems every word straight from the heart
I love the way you do everything I just loved to love you from the start

I hate to see you angry and I hate to see you sad
I hate to see you cry and I hate to see you mad


I hate it when you say his name I hate how perfect he was
Im probably just over jealous wanting to be the one you love

But now I hate the way I love you I cant stand the pain
With all this hurt and suffering its really hard to stay sane

I know we cant be together I guess its just my fate
I loved every thing about you and now everything I loved I hate

I hate the way you do your hair I hate the way you smile
I cant stand the way you make me laugh every moment bitter and vile

I hate the way you write your poems every word stabs through my heart
I hate the way you do everything I hate that I loved you from the start

But I still hate to see you angry I still hate to see you sad
I still hate to see you cry and I still hate to see you mad

I still hate hearing his name and how perfect he was
Im still just over jealous wanting to be the one you love

If I could heal the broken cracks and mend I broken heart
I wouldn’t change anything I'd love you over from the start

And if I could turn back time and ask for one last wish
I would only want from you the warmth of one last kiss

"Heaven"—is what I cannot reach!
The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
