Fire

A Poem by Roberta Weth

Hate

            Hated

                        Hatred

I Hate

          You Hate

 

He Hates               She Hates

 

Conjugate it all you want

No Punctuation or Grammar

No wall of commas or periods

Can stand against

 

That twisting fire

 

It coils and chokes

Catching the words

Before they leave your mind

                       

   Smothering your chest

 

It fills,                       It flows,                        It burns

 

Leaves nothing

           And Destroys so much

 

So dangerous  

But we refuse

                            To Let go

Hate

                        Hated

                                                Hatred

I Hate

          You Hate

 

He Hates               She Hates

 

They hate

                      We all Hate

I like the point made in your words. Hate had no where to go but more hate. A powerful poem. Thank you.

Nice choices of words to describe your hate, but hate will soon fill your heart, hate where love once had its start. For when your hurt in the end its not hate that should let you win. It was thought opening.

Intrestig format, if you changed the fnt color and maybe the font itself, the very poem may seem to be on fire with the hatred you describe so very well with your words. Do we all hate simply because we are human?
