I don't like you but I love You

I don’t like you but I love you!

Yes, those are the lyrics to that popular song.

I hate that I have come to feel that exact way about you,

but why do you;

 tell me my paintings look like a child constructed them,

 push my bangs to the side and tell me to grow them out,

proclaim that I am only pretty in the town we live,

refuse to meet my friends,

and say I should not have children because I am unstable?

It’s as if

you don’t like me, but you say love me.

    I know these words pretty good..... a tough way to view the obstacles of love and hate... all of it is born from each other.... SKAT
