Your love
It’s addictive
It’s beautiful

It’s terrible
It’s sweet

It’s a bitter taste on my lips

I love it

I despise it
I love you

I hate you

Can’t live without you

I’m dead with you
I need you

Can’t believe I do
You love me

You use me

Your kisses, like sugar

Your words like salt on my bleeding heart

Stitch up the hurt

Rip me apart

Pulling me close

Pushing me away
Assuring words

Filled with deceit
Healing me

Killing me
Filling the hole

Bleeding me from the inside out

Needing my love

Abusing my love
I love you

I hate you

Are you worthy of my love?

Are you deserving of my hate?

I like the idea, but the way it was so spaced out was distracting (I don't know if that was your doing or not). I felt that if the words were in more of a stanza type form, the back and forth would be more clear. I actually got kind of confused about which was love or hate. So maybe try putting the love in one stanza and the hate in another, then switch back and forth? Otherwise, very good (:

I tried and I guess the formatting was being hateful. That's how it was when I submitted it :/ oh well

why didnt anyone reply with feedback? This poem is AWESOME (talk about a bittersweet romance) certain words play it as dark, and sickly sweet. i liked it. This is one unique poem.

Like a taste of dark chocolate, actually, if i had to compare it to anything...........(i think I'm getting just a bit too obsessed with belgian chocolate these days, lol)
