Love & Hate

I love you for all the lies you told
I hate you for believing they were true
I love you for knocking me around
I hate you for the bruises that never healed
I love you for everything I thought you were

I hate you for coming into my life
I love you for acting like you cared
I hate you for choosing them over me
I love you for coming home anyway
I hate you for making me fall in love

I love you when your lying in the ground
I hate you for making me be the one
I love the blood on my hands, it's true
I hate that you're actually gone, who knew
I love you always..until we meet again

Ouch! this one is resplendent in pain...the good with the bad! it really moved me...the thread of sorrow that tied it all together! you are getting to be one of mu favorite poets. I cannot choose favorite lines, too many of them...

Thank you for the high praise! This definitely came from a broken, damaged part of me. Glad you were able to see the meaning and enjoyed it. :)

In other times, I had a female alter ego. I don't relate well to a male alter even tho I really enjoy Eddy and Killer. I think the parts of me that are still broken really dislike men and makes it hard to jump into their skin.
