i love you
but at the same time i hate you
you love me but always deny it.
sometimes you make me smile-
but mostly you make me cry-
you hurt me by saying you love another.
i ignore everything you say
it’s very hard to find the truth
among your lies.
your voice lingers in my ears
long after we talk
for i want to cherish all the
words you say – the good and the bad.
you place yourself above me
but you are more lonely than i
for i have many who are equal to me
but you will not admit to being equal to
i love you-
but at the same time – i hate you.
i think it is best not to think
seriously about you –
that way the tears will remain
