I hate you
I hate you because you stole my heart,
but I don’t want it returned;
The fact that it is safe with you,
is something I have learned.
I hate the way you smile at me,
It stops all time and space;
When you are near, I feel at ease,
and grounded in my place.
I hate how you can make time fly,
and yet, make each moment last;
I feel as though you are my world,
I hate the spell you’ve cast.
I hate the times you’ve shown you care,
I always question why;
I know, that I can count on you,
to catch the tears I cry.
I hate the way you look at me,
what you see I do not know;
I’m scared you’ll find out how I feel,
I hope it doesn’t show.
I hate the way you touch my hand,
because eventually, you let go;
I hate the way you hug me tight,
my feelings over-flow.
I hate the way you talk to me,
Your voice is firm, but kind;
The way you think, is different,
I appreciate, your mind.
I hate you because of who you are to me,
You cannot be replaced;
I hate the way you make me feel,
but my emotions, must be faced.
I love, the warmth your presence brings,
and how you’re always true;
For the soul that you are,
until I die, I will love you.
