What Makes You Hate Me So

What Makes You Hate Me So?

What makes you despise
Every move that I make.
You see not the effects
That continue to break.

You break me inside
Slowly I drown.
Criticisms you speak
Suffocates all around.

All around crumbles down
I stand there alone.
You smother my soul
Though you do not know.

Know that you hurt
My feelings I cry.
Yet you do not care
Can’t understand why.

Why this way you act
To destroy what is built.
Maybe from anger
Or possibly guilt.

Guilty I feel
For letting you down.
Yet you brought it yourself
And I cannot be bound.

Bound by your mistakes
And the problems you create.
They are not my own
Yet still you do hate.

Hate how I live
That I am free.
That you want all
I’ve come to be.

    I liked how you linked each stanza with the next...also, it was nice to see the positive change in the end, though I'd rather have had it build gradually than jump so suddenly at the last. Thanks for sharing your poem.
