Wonderful Enemy - Poem by Jan Hauck

A part, a piece, well loved and nurtured,
Hidden away, denied, not missed
And yet no completion, conclusion, without.
Why do you come back?
Why do I call you back?
I need you, I hate you, I run away from you,
And miss you when you are not here.

Are you ever really gone, were you ever,
Those times I tried to erase me and erase you,
I despise how you make me feel,  
I want you gone. I want you.
Not a part, almost the whole which never feels whole,
In such a sweet, comforting way,
Like drowning, fading, a candle's last minute.

I want to cry when you are not here,
I cry when you are here, fight, surrender, love again,
Can't avoid you, please don't avoid me,
Fill a void as you create a void, complete me
And leave me empty, craving more,
Inspiring, crushing, like a sick dependent courtship,
A cycle I do not want nor dare to break.
