This is a series I’m calling “Write the Damn Poem” where I finally write and publish poetry. This is an oldie, written back in 2016, but edited recently. This one is particularly interesting because I had a lot of emotion attached to this situation. Reading back, I feel extremely proud of my own growth and the distance I’ve been able to put between me now and me when I first started this piece.

I want to hate you so badly
but I get heartbroken every time
you ignore me.

Each time I reach a boiling point
your charm inexplicably
reels me back in.

I miss you.
I don’t like you.
I’m in love with you.
I want to never see you again.
