The Receiving Side of Hate

This is an old poem I did back when I was going through a darker time in my life. It's about the relationship between two people who have just broken up, from the point of view of the dumper.

When you can feel pure hatred from someone who use to love you

Someone you use to love back; Its one of the saddest feelings in the world.


Knowing, in their eyes, you are the most horrible person

When in truth, they did so much more then you, if only they knew.


But maybe, the reason they hate you, isnt for what you did

It cause you were one of the ones that got away

Maybe they are truly angry with themselves

For not having a better hold on you


You could go on and on, trying to figure out the answer to "Why?"

But no brainstorming, or discussions, will ever get you any where

When you cant trust a single person to know whats going on in their heads

Because you cant trust a word out of a liars mouth, no matter who theyre from


Maybe its one of those things you will never know

One of the unsolved mysteries of your life

All you can do is hope and pray that one day

You wont even care to search and wonder for the answers.
