I Hate that I love you (remix)

I hate the way you can look at me
and I get lost in your gaze.
I hate the way you can see past
my looks and see who I really am.
I hate the way you can make me laugh
even when I don't want to smile.
I hate the way you know just what to say
to get me to smile again.
I hate it when you smile and
I get lost in your gaze.
I hate it when I look into your eyes
and I get lost in a daze.
I hate it when you know
what I am about to say.
I hate the way you can make me happy
with one little stare.
I hate the feeling that I get when
you are not there.
I hate it when you make me laugh but,
even more when you make me cry.
I hate the fact that I love you so much
and that one day you might hurt me.
I hate it when you don't call
when you say you will.
I hate it when you lie even
when you know I already know.
I hate it when you think it is ok
to look at me then look away.
I hate it when you see straight
through my tough girl act.
I hate it when you stick up for me.
I hate it when you don't talk to me.
But really what I hate most of all
is the fact that I love you.

    Beautiful, very expressive. Love is a double edged sowrd, it can be the loveliest thing full of happieness, or grotesque and full of pain. Your poems shows the exact way those we love get to us with their actions. This deserves a 10! Bravo Kelsea! :) (Report) Reply

    Well, you definitely expressed your torment and pain quite creatively.
    It's truly amazing what incredible powers of love has and what it instills
    in us, and what it makes us reveal, and do. So good job and keep using
    this forum to filter through what ails you. (Report) Reply

    Wow Kelsea - this is a tough poem full of Hate and Love. It seems like you are MESMERISED by this person. I guess it is a Young Man who has mannaged to metaphorically 'get under your skin'. This is a common phenomena as we go through life 'We always love the one who hurts us - and whose love for us does not match up to our own love for them'. The poem is telling me that you hate all the reponses you give to - His gaze - his jokes - his hurts - his failure to phone - his lies - his attitude and even - his support. the last couplet is very telling 'But really what i hate most of all - is the fact that I love you'. Love can destroy us Kelsea and what we have to do is to stand back and see what such a person is doing to us and make a decision to UNLOVE THEM. I know it is more easily said than done - but i had to do it several times - when i was a teenager - to wash certain ladies out of my hair if teir love was being destructive. I hope this helps - if thsi si a real 'cry from your hurting heart'. love in poetry - JOHN (Report) Reply
