the one you care for

The one you care for is the one that hurts you,
The one you keep hidden is the one that knows not of what you feel,
The one you love you miss the chance to love again,
The one that you lust over is the one that will play you,
The one you don’t like is the one who will always be around,
The one you hate will never have the same feelings for you,
The one you loath will never stick around long enough to know your true feelings,
For the one you loath is the one you care for,
For the one you hate you keep hidden from the truth,
For the one you don’t like is the one you are in love with.

This poem is really relatable. I like your idea of using the repetitive structure, although I think you could use it to show more of a progression.
