A Very Fine Line

I loved you -
I hate you!
And now I can’t wait to
See you fall from grace - like the stupid fool that you are -
(Right on cue)
That perfect mouth
I once kissed
Now just looks slack
And I’m pissed
That others even listen
To the phoney nonsense you spew!
Those big muscled arms
That once saved me from harm
Seem to drag with your knuckles
On the floor,
And those dumb little jokes
That you share with all folks
Are banal embarrassments
And, believe me,
You walk towards me,
I seethe!
What a nerve!
I can’t breathe!
“Get Lost!”
I manage to hiss
In front of me you stand, -
then grab hold of my hand!
I’ll hit you!
(I swear I won’t miss!)
You pull me tight to your chest
My heart pounds in my breast
What are you doing?
Good God up above!!
Your lips then meet mine
More potent than wine,
My heart melts –
I have fallen in love!
