I Love You, I Hate You

I hate you

because I love you.

You have ruined me completely.

I was fine on my own

before you showed me what togetherness is.

I didn’t complain, or even think twice about, shouldering the burdens of life

until you demonstrated true partnership for me.

I used to flit from one social engagement to another with laughter on my lips

and then you came along and let me know what true contentment feels like.

Now I am utterly miserable in your absence.

My anger flairs because you have loved me too well,

and now I am forever changed.

I love you. I hate you. I love you.
