To Live

By , Cincinnati, OH
You’re a mockery of Fayte, a hideous monster,
A mockery of the way Love lies,
And a mockery of how Death saves,
You despise the best and love the worst.
You love your own reflection, beautiful in
Shattered glass like a face that will
Not be erased from this canvas
You will not go away, you will stay
In this place with nothing to remain unchanged
From the time that we ended to the time that
We began again, I cannot stand you
You’re demented, you’re demanding, you’re
Not that boy who was understanding
I hate you, I love you, I despise
This face of HATE, of DESPERATION
Of LOVE, of GREED.
Emotions I’ve forgotten how to use,
How to express, how to admit that I have,
Leave me now,
NO!
Come back to me,
Don’t leave here like this
I just want to be with you,
To make it through this life
I miss you, you know
You left me for dead on a hypothetical
Highway, and I can’t stand you now
I need you to live, I need you to die.
I want to see the worst in you, but
It’s not happening, why can’t I hate
The one who hurt me so much?
I know I’m bleeding faster now,
Blood pouring from my punctured heart,
Might as well be broken now,
Life is fading fast now,
I will always love you,
I will always hate you, you and your hate
I will miss you, will hate you, will love you.
