    I hate to love him
    I hate I do
    I hate to miss him
    Makes me feel weak too
    I hate to breakdown
    And call his name
    Why do I love him?
    When he just brings more pain

    I hate to leave him
    Cuz life goes back to gray
    Hate admitting I need him
    When it seems like he’s okay
    If he ain’t got me
    Looks like his life goes on
    Why can’t I be
    Like that and move on?

    I hate to love the way he kisses
    Hate to love the way he holds
    And makes me scream and moan and be surrendered to his every need
    I hate to yearn him on a lonely night
    And he ain’t home to comfort my
    Insecurities, it’s him I need but he act like he don’t want me

    I hate to call him
    When he ain’t called in a few days
    I feel like we’re playin
    Some type of childish game
    I don’t ever win though
    Its like he knows he’s got me
    I come back for more, so
    Then again I just leave

    I hate to love the way he kisses
    Hate to love the way he holds
    And makes me scream and moan and be surrendered to his every need
    I hate to yearn him on a lonely night
    And he ain’t home to comfort my
    Insecurities, it’s him I need but he act like he don’t want me

    Just don’t know what to do no more, I’m at my end
    When I’m with him the whole thing changes and I’m whole again
    Try to explain myself but I just don’t get heard
    Maybe one day he’ll stop by read this, and things will concur

    But for now

    I hate to love him
    Cuz last night I cried
    Drenched pillow cuz of him
    I tried to close my eyes
    I hate he’s got me
    So deep into his heart
    But he ain’t working
    To make us a work of art

    I hate to love him
    But I don’t hate him
    I’m so in love with him
    That’s why I’m hurtin’….

    Love create emotions so rare
    some of joy some of pain to bare
    passionate feeling takes control
    because we love so deep .........

    I was really feeling this and don't feel bad, you ain't the only one that hates to love a nameless him that we really shouldn't. Trust me, i know about the phone calls and the crying and the needing only that special person but he's nowhere to be found. And it seems like his life goes on perfectly with you. Girl...trust me, i know what you mean. Beautiful poem! Much love to you.

    If you didn't love so much, it wouldn't hurt so much. This was intricately posed, I felt every word poet. Truly heartfelt.

    Whoa

    I like this piece because it's so deep!It reflects some relationship:someone is more involved than the other and he just have to make do with because it's over is will.
    I want everybody to make BIG NOISE for you because your aim is reached;i can feel your pain as if i were you. :insane: :donttell:
    Anyway,i really appreciate the fact that you've open your heart this way.U show us ur skills (really,you've the gift of word)!
    I want to encourage you;a bright future is ahead
    Peace
    Lloyd

    I feel you so much in this piece....It does hurt to be in loves captivity when its grasping you too hard and all your doing is humbling yourself...To false hopes of love loosening its grip..
