I know that I hate
the hurt
the violence
and the control
but these I have learned to live with
and you have grown older
and not so.
but when you try to
talk of a cease fire
of love
and friendship
and respect
I hate you all the more.
your words try to worm their way
into my reason for living
until I can't bear to hear
even one more.
after all you've put me through
do you really expect
for me
to love
you?
you aren't,
have never been
and will never be
the man that I need to love
and now after all this time
of living only to hate you
I think I hate you
more for the man that you
aren't
than for man you are.

Someone with so very much love to give
Should have more than hate as reason to live!
A powerful punch, this poem does pack
Wish you had all the love your life now lacks!

Wow! This one grabs me but hate takes up too much energy and destroys you in the end, counter-act it, find the sun and raise your face to it, feel the warmth...you just can't let him win..

fc,I understand.Truly. But, he is not worth all the energy it takes to hate someone. He doesn't care if you hate him. Let it go sweetie. It will only eat you up inside.- SEA

OUCH!  This really packs a wallop.  They say there is a thin line between love and hate.  Be careful about crossing it.  I feel so badly for you.  Best thing is to let go and forgive, move on.  Life is to short to waste it on someone that isn't worthy of your love.
Great writing, I felt every single blow of your pen sword.  You will be in my prayers.
God Bless, Crying for you.

well was gonna respond to each post, but will instead respond to all:
yes it is all that you say it is, and it saddens me that this is inside me, but I am working on it, it will not take me down, and so I thank you for your friendship and your support....
hugs to all

You hit the snail on the head here. It's true. Sometimes we do hate someone more for what they are not when we know they could have been with just a little effort on their part. Excellent writing, girl.

FC-
It's easy to say ... let go of the anger.
Not so easy to do.
Let it be spent ... and then gone.
One day at a time.
Here's a *hug*

I hope you'll find that writing it
let's go of some of it.
KEEP WRITING !

OUCH! Wow is this poem emotional! Hatred will most likely destroy you in the end so my advice is to simply let go. It's now simple but if you hate that guy so much why waste the energy on him? Excellent poem!!!

fc- this was beautiful, and heartfelt... I know what you are feeling, all too well.

As hard as letting go is, at times, that seems to be the only key to releasing the hate.  

Take care...
