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.

To need a heartbeat so badly, to have a treasure that can't be kept, to touch kind lips that never want to leave, but must makes this unique hate something cathartic, yet like special love touch the hate also must leave. I really love how in the end you keep your love alive despite the pain, expressed with a sweet bleeding loyalty. There is also an undeniable truth in the passionate moments you share. Your emotions are so real Faiqaah...J.A.B.

I can see why this won over so many. One hears and feels the innocence of this one who loves and hates. A 7 . Congratulations on your win! My bad for being so late. Still catching up with my reading.

Hi Ell. I did read it; it sounds lovely but I unfortunately don't understand it as I can only speak English. I have also read your English poems here on poetrysoup; I really like your poem Only The Sun; and don't be sad, your English is actually very good and will get better:) It is nice to meet you too; I am from South Africa. Best Regards -F
