Love Me, Leave Me, Hate Me


Love Me, Leave Me, Hate Me

I encountered you twice
The second time you had daggers in your eyes
But the first time all you could do was cry
Step into the light, you still had shadows on your face
With tissues blood stained wiped from the wall paint
It ain't no nightmare waking you up from your sleep
To see two hands grasping the air from you while youd dream
How do you wake up from reality?
Perhaps comfort comes when you think you tamed the beast
Maybe this time, you don't know him like I do
But momma always told me twice shame on you
Now hold up, how is it we are the ones to blame
When the one slapping you has made you insane
I love you, I promise to never hurt you again
This time its different, I even got some roses sent
Can't you see the tears coming
I'm desperate cause I am losing them
Too bad he doesn't tell you what he plans the next time you leave
And the puppeteer convinces you its family
Yet we never divided you, we never crossed a line
Matter of fact, you were the one who darkened our doors since month two
Help me once! Help me twice!
My kids are screaming for thier lives!
So now our lives are shattered and torn and we're left crying too
Then you turn and walk away
Clasp your hands with the man's whose are bloodstained
Does that make you one, have you now become the beast?
Cause yesterday he beat you till your head throbbed
But today you leaned over and kissed him on the cheek
Its like watching a train wreck, trained you to isolate you to himself
I just hope the next time he apologizes
We won't be tossing roses onto your grave
Cause I hate to say I told you so
But its happening the exact way we say....

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
