All the way!

And I thought I could hate,
Push you away,
Deny you the intimacy of late,
I fancied I could murder,
My dreams, the lonesome murmurs,
I waited long, longed for obscurity,
Fought my low creed, my inferiority,
I planned my death, yes my escape,
Though failed, couldn't deny you, my sage!
Then I listened, stricken to all powering fate,
I heard and obeyed, to a far place you sailed,
Years passed my love, still some moments,
Before my papery ships shrivel away,
Fighting ebbs of my watery laments,
And now I wish with tears, I could say!
"O the wished one! I did love you,
All the merry and dreary way!

i know the feeling of thinking you're able to hate someone... and realizing almost simultaneously that you can't. the use of the word 'and' to start draws the reader directly into the action of the poem, well done.

emotions can drag us into madness at times, the feelings of wanting death. i like the idea of time here centuries passing.

i like the wording of this, some strong feelings here.
