The Hypocrisy Of It All - Poem by Melissa Joy Chesky

I hate that I can't see
the flaws in you.
I hate that I don't know
if you lie straight to my face
with no regard to my heart.
I hate that look in your
eyes that makes me want you
to stare more.
I hate that glint in your
I hate that feeling
deep inside:
the pain, but also the passion;
the aching hunger.
I hate your hugs,
and your laugh,
and the many things that
brings my mind back to you,
and the pain,
and the persistent yearning sensation.
But really,
most of all,
I hate that I don't-
and can't-
hate any of those things.
