Dear Other me

Dear other me,
The me that isn’t me,
The me that isn’t human,
I just want to tell you,
I hate you,

I hate that way you whisper in my ear,
That I could never be strong enough,
That I could never be good enough,
When you tell me that I could never try hard enough,
I Hate You,

I hate the way your shadow overwhelms me,
Your darkness consumes me,
And you tell me, that I will never escape,
That I will never be big enough,
I Hate You

I hate the way you make me angry,
The way you tell me I could never get by on my own,
You make me wish I was alone,
And I am slowly beginning to think you are right,
I HATE YOU

I hate that without you I wouldn’t push myself farther,
I will never stop trying to prove you wrong,
I tell myself I will keep getting better,
And that I will make myself strong,
So . . . thank you.

Wow, awesome work. I laughed at the ending (not in a mean way, in an appreciative way). It's so quirky! What a wonderful twist. Loved it. 5 stars. I liked the repeated I hate you with slight changes each time until you change it at the end. I like it. Great work. :D

Oh, and by the way, this follows a similar theme as my poem titled A Muse. Since your writing style seems similar, would you mind checking it out and posting a comment? I would love your feedback! :D
