Mixed Emotions


Mixed Emotions


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
