I Love

I hate, that I'm not the first 
Thing sought out when you start your day

I hate, that I'm not the last thing
You hold onto before you fall asleep

I hate, that I feel like a
Burden you have to bear

I hate, how completely insane
You make me feel

'Cause normally things make sense

But when I talk to you, everything
Out of control

I hate, that you are the dragon
I chase
Just like a heroin addict

I can't get enough
And above all I wish there was a magic cure
To your intoxication

Something I could take that would purge you from my thoughts
Set me free from your shackles of emotion

But the worst part is
That is quite possibly the thing that I don't want at all

Quite possibly I love how
You make me crazy

How you make me so unlike me
In that I am better with you

Maybe I hate you, because
I love you

Maybe you just make me scared
To be feeling things I haven't felt
In so long

Things I swore I would never feel
Ever again but here you just waltzed 
Right back in to my life
And changed me all over again

I can't seem to escape you
Therefore, I hate you

Go away, but never leave me

I hate that I love you
