Three Little Words - Poem by Mark Bell

Swam the oceans
Swam the seas
To say these words
To the tune of three.
Climbed Mount Everest
Walked to Kathmandu
To say these three words
Sweet softly to you
I've been to heaven
I've been to hell
These three little words
To you I must tell
I searched and searched
And I tragically went blind
Year after year dreaming
Going out of my mind.
I died,
And simply did not no what to do
So on my epitaph it read
I hate you.

    That was a surprise! I was expecting some protracted from of I LOVE YOU! Usually, I HATE easier? Maybe not? Hmmmm. I guess if someone really screws with your love and and all your feelings get sublimated and repressed, its hard to get it out. At any rate... well done...surprise and got me! :) (Report) Reply

    I like twists to stories

    This certainly was a surprise ending. I was expecting something different. But we have all felt this hatred when life does not go as we hoped it would. Hopefully, it won't last. Your poem held my interest. (Report) Reply

    Thank you for reading
    I don't have hate in my heart
    I just make poems up
    And have a twist thanks again
    For reviewing my writing
