Thank you, Hate

I can’t seem to bear the thought without you--
Yet, I cannot live with you,
Always around every corner,
Lurking, Following my every move,

You judge and laugh and despise,
Yet I love the criticism,
Makes me feel like I can always improve,
But what if I don’t want to improve?

I like the way I am--
Yet, you keep pushing me into something else,
Always encouraging me to do things differently,
Wear my hair up or down?

Don’t waste your breath--
Either way, I wouldn't look good in the eyes of you,
Now that I think about it,
Nothing I do would make me worthy of you,

I need your space, but I desperately need your appraisal--
Everyone has it around them,
Some more than others, yet no one can live with or without you,
We loathe yet adore you, thank you, hate
