I Hate You


I hate you like the fire hates the rain
I hate you like the whore hates the shame
I hate you like the priest hates the sin
I hate you like the snake hates its skin
I hate you like the teen-mom hates her child
I hate you like the smoker hates his milds
I hate you like the father hates his failure
I hate you like the inmate hates his jailor
I hate you like the woman hates her period
I hate you like the non-believer hates the sacred
I hate you like the forest hates the fire
I hate you like the rapist hates his desire
I hate you like the ocean hates the storm
I hate you like the child who hates to be born
I hate you like the hungry hate their lives
I hate you like the skin hates the knife
I hate you like the devil hates the above
I hate you like you hate love

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
