The Reason I Hate You

Updated on July 29, 2015

The Reason I Hate You

There are so many reasons

Why I hate you

The first is that you lied

When you said your love was true

You took me by the hand

And promised me the world

But you never thought that

Some day the truth will unfold

You told me I was

Your one and only

And made me think I would

Never know how it feels to be lonely

You kissed and caressed me

Like it was your first time

I often found it hard to believe

That you were mine

If only I knew

That my smile

And my joy

Was only for a while

You even wrote me love poems

And I loved how they were recited

But I guess both

Our destinies were decided

I can`t get you off my mind

But the love is gone!

This means it`s time

For us both to move on


There are so many reasons

Why I hate you

I can`t put them all in words

But most of all

I hate you because I loved you!

      Thank you RJ, I truly that true poetry is about putting those thought on paper.

      This speaks the thoughts so many jilted people have found themselves in - nice job!
