A Hate Poem by Matthew Peel

A Hate

Rating: 5.0


I hate you? That cannot be
I want you, don't you see?
You are my star that shines so bright
Like the pale moon across the night.
To me, the red cardinal
Soars freely in the sky.
You handed me this gift
While I lie in the grass like a child.
Now what I say causes a rift
And our foundation is defiled.

I hate you? That cannot be.
My heart is worn in apathy.
I have nothing more to say
And the sun disappears behind the bay.
When the crows fly by
Shakes the Heaven that we built
With tremors that tremble on a high
And the angels walk away riddled with guilt.
When I lay in peaceful dreams
My spirit settles inside
I think about you
But I scare away our memories
My heart will learn what is true
And my mind will be as clear
As the dawn upon the seas.
