Love/Hate

Love







Hate

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)
