I Hate It

(by Lisa He-Wu)

I hate how I can’t hate you,
I hate the way you look at me
and the way you talk to me.
It makes me feel guilty.

I hate the way you criticize my
career choices. I hate your sarcastic
tone of voice when you compliment
me. It makes me feel useless.

I hate the way you chew your hot dog
when we go on dates. I hate the way
you talk with your mouth full. It
makes me uncomfortable.

I hate how you’re never around,
I hate how you tell me you miss
me. I hate the way you make
me feel. It makes me sick.

I hate your ugly green sweater
and I hate your colorful socks.
I hate the way you put your Nike
hat on sideways. It makes me mad.

I hate how much you have changed
and I hate that you’re not the same.
I hate that I can’t hate you the way
I want to hate you.

 

Many thanks to Lisa for allowing us to include her work in the PFTW blog.
