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
.
