Hate
yes, please hate
hate me
hate me with the burning flame of Lucifer
don’t love me
love me not
what is love in neglect?
what is love at the back of a draw
a forgotten black and white photograph
a useless memory
hate me
hate me please
hate me with your hellish burning desire
my very core
the burning passion
August 2021
