Love

Love, was suggested by herviross for my poetry challenge. So here it is. Don’t ask…

I love the way you stare at me
With hatred in your eyes
I love the way you torture me
With insults through your sighs

I can see you want to hurt me
When your smile starts to crack
I love your half hearted apologies
As you try to take it back

I love the way you put me down
When you push me with your hands
The rush of blood runs through my head
When I try to stand

I love how you have trapped me,
Confused in my own mind
The conditions that you set for me
The harsh ones underlined

If looks could kill…

I know you would pull the trigger

  1. love the way you’ve picked up all the little tell-tale intonations of antipathy – I would never dream of lessening the impact of aggression and violence but the little things over longer periods can undermine as much as or more – and the stanza that feeds the punchline:
    ‘I love how you have trapped me,
    Confused in my own mind
    The conditions that you set for me
    The harsh ones underlined’

    cracking! my jealousy knows no bounds… but I’m smiling 🙂

    1. Thank you for your feedback and your kind words, it really means a lot. When I write poetry, I am in the moment and it just flows. I can’t say the same with my responses, I tend to get digitally tongue tied and don’t know what to say!
