The Love of Hate Poem by T.. Veronica

I hate the way you annoy me
I hate the way you talk
I hate the way you laugh at me,
I hate the way you mock

I hate the way you think you know me
I hate the way you assume
I hate the way you frustrate me,
Driving me to my doom

I hate the way you get under my skin
I hate when I look into your eyes
I hate the fact I don’t hate it,
And the fact my heart cannot lie

I don’t want to get to know you
But my emotions betrayed me again
I just don’t think I can offer you
Anything beyond a friend.

For past mistakes of this thing called love
Was surely just confusion
A heated passion gone to waste;
Nothing more than just an illusion

I tell you now to walk away
Stay far and clear from me
For the pain that burns beneath this soul
Will never set me free.
