Please Help Me Hate You


I am sitting here in silence
Wishing for your presence
Can you love me again?
Or will it just be another den?

You just seem to be so fine
Do you ever feel my pain?
Everything you do shines in line
My loss seems to be your gain

My head screams out your name
And my mind cries out the same
My eyes won’t see a thing
And my heart made you the king

How can I reclaim my control?
You took everything away
Not sparing even my soul
I became your loving prey

But then how can I blame?
When everything was a game
Your plan was precise and clear
And I was the tamed ear

Believing your every word
Striking deeply inside my heart
I love you was your codeword
Never thought of being hurt

Can you please make me hate you?
Will you please help me hate you?
I just want to hate you for awhile
Because I will never stand at the aisle

At least not with you by my side
And loving you feels like a crime
Will I ever get over you?
Will you help me get over you?

They say I deserve more
But it is only you I still adore
Am I wrong to still love you?
Or you just don’t have any clue?

    Thank you for your comment Bri. You are right 'dead end' will also be good but then what I had in mind was someone who was retreating into a hiding place, taking refuge in a place he is comfortable with, staying away from people like an injured animal. (Report) Reply

    nasteha, i especially liked this stanza:

    Can you please make me hate you?
    Will you please help me hate you?
    I just want to hate you for awhile
    Because I will never stand at the aisle

    but i didn't understand another den.
    did you mean one of these dens? :
    den (dn)
    n.
    1. The shelter or retreat of a wild animal; a lair.
    2. A cave or hollow used as a refuge or hiding place.
    3. A hidden or squalid dwelling place: a den of thieves.
    4. A secluded room for study or relaxation.
    5. A unit of about eight to ten Cub Scouts.

    maybe instead of another den..........a dead end? thanks for sharing. :) bri (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
