Backstabbing Fire

Your jagged claws tear at my face
Ripping apart every ounce of grace
You know you love me
Yet you love to hurt me even more
It’s just that I’m too struck by you to see
And I can’t get you out of my head
But
The horrible things you did to me on that bed
The things better left unsaid
Are the things I can’t explain
The things
That chased away my loveable plains
Maybe I am, maybe I’m not
Maybe we all are gone
I just may be someone you forgot
I’m just a shadow
In the dusk
You cheater
You liar
You backstabbing fire
I hate you
I love you
I hate that I love you

Fantastic! This is nicely written. I can't see anything I don't like. Maybe you should give this one a try in some contests.
