A Love of hating.

Steel and Spiderweb [love him till he hurts.]

You hate him
You hate the way he makes you want him
Makes you want to love him till he fucking hurts

You kiss him with your sticky red lips
Hard and
Fast and
Artificially flavoured

There is no need to breathe.

You are tangled in him
With your ivory hands of steel and spiderweb--
He catches you like the insect you are,
And sucks you raw,
Leaves you dying

You know this is the breaking point.

You snap the threads and pull away,
Remembering his long legs and
Hands that cobwebbed you into the darkness

He could never love what you are.


"This changes nothing," you say,
A feeble attempt
To be that person you were five minutes ago

"Don't be so cliché," he says, pulling you close with ivory hands of steel and spiderweb.

"This changes everything".

OMG, mRS.! I love you and your writing and you and you and your art and you and your poems and everything else.
This one is my favorite that I've read.

Damn it, I forgot to give you a five.
Well, here you go.

This makes me want to go completely against my nature and squeal "Oh-my-gaaawd!". (For the record; that's one hell of a compliment, coming from me.)

Very well written.

kind of crazy what attraction does to us, eh... we love and seek affection but sometimes in the wrong hands... and even though we know in our mind its not right, we go for it anyway... go figure... this is a nice poem... lots of emotions, definitely... thanks for sharing :f

later... xx

love and hate, the same coin i think, it is just spinning in the air, the light catching both.
