I Despise that I adore You.

I Despise that I adore You.

A Poem by Karli

Love me.

Hold me.

Kiss Me.

Drop me off at home.

The very next day, I'm left alone.

Have you no concept of Love?

Have you no Faith in Us?


No, it's too late.

Come knocking at my door once more,

aren't your hands sore?

You must be exhausted from breaking my heart.

You've done it numerous times.

Try to come back.

I scream at you.

You shout back.

I argue.

You cut me off.

You kiss me softly.

You tell me you love me.

You hold me tightly.

The cycle starts once more.

But one thing's for sure.

I adore you

and for that, I despise you.

No matter what,

you've always been there.

I despise that I adore you,

Don't ever leave my life.

I love you.

Pros: Ah, I've been in this position, a relationship that swings from good to bad as if it was on a pendulum. It's frustrating, and I definitely get that feeling from this poem. Frustration and love. We always love those that hurt us, but we cannot help it.

Cons: None.

Overall: I really did enjoy this poem, good job :)

qoq! Thats really sweet! I love the love you put into the poem, I love the details in the poem, and how you express the love. I love how it ends, a perfect end 'i love you', isnt that what all people want to hear?
