Unintelligible Susurration


Born to Hate


I was sure
I meant a lot to Tommy.
He even told me
that all of his songs
were solely written for me.

But then he released
his new album
with titles like 'For Mary Anne'
and 'Mary's Song'.

He said he had found someone else
who made him feel
like he actually had
a purpose in life.

Mary Anne was full of spirit
and ethereal.
I am anything but that.

I am morose and obscene.
I prefer staying at home
pounding on the piano
than to be hiking through the forest
collecting twigs and stones.

Maybe that is why he likes her.
I lacked all those things
and that is exactly what Tommy
was looking for.

He apologized
for not telling me sooner.
I said it was fine
since we had only been friends.

Tommy found his other half,
his soulmate.
He had long been looking for one
and he was certain I
would be his true love.

Then came along Mary Anne
who ruined my life
and made me the way I am today.

Maybe I really was born to hate.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem relates to myself in that I've known people who tell me I am the only person they will ever love or some lie along the lines of that. Then they push me away and find someone better - someone to replace me. This person is no doubt totally the opposite of me and 'new' so it is obvious they like them better. But I cannot do a thing. After all, we were just friends. :)

I hate you. :)
