A Hate/Love Relationship This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By , Canoga Park, CA
Was it always your plan to sabotage my life and make it your own?
To run a string of emotions through my body and puppet me with it?
You, manipulative charmer, you.
You, man unbearable, man irresistible.
You, the water-damaged pages of my diary.
You,whom I love in a melancholic sense of the word.
I don't know how to think when I'm with you.
Inanimate ragdoll, naive and so vulnerable to your sweet talk.
You write my script, but you're also the leading man.
Dictate my next move, sir, because I don't know what to do.

I loved everything about this poem! I love the way you wrote it, I love the message behind it, I loved the word choice. I just thought it was amazing. I was in a very controlling relationship for 10 months and completely relate to this poem. Wonderful job. Keep up the good work! :)

"You, whom I love in a melancholic sense of the word"

Thank you for putting into words the feelings that I've been trying to figure out. That was beautiful.
