Do I Love Your Ways?

I hate you dislike Bob Marley

I love you know the right words to say

I hate you leave me in emotional limbo

I love you find me fairly humorous

I hate red nail varnish on your toes

I love to smell your hair when I hold you

I hate you don’t let me in my kitchen

I love you slicing onions and pounding yam

I hate you can be needlessly pessimistic

I love you say ‘yeah baby’ when I call

I hate you have too many shoes

I love the clothes you buy me are spot on

I hate you can’t take simple driving instructions

I love long trips with you as my companion

I hate how much attention you give your novels

I love you always select the best movies for the evening

I hate you make we wait for ages

I love you cosset me when my back hurts

I hate you dot all the T’s and cross all the I’s

I’m in love with the love we make

Jaja said...

Even with the things you are hating, there is a sense of tenderness tied to this...

It is a quiet post that leaves me with a mood that is not easily shaken off.

plastiQ said...

Nice one bro. But don't you think the line between 'hate' and 'love' is too thick? Like a sharp protruding divider.

sprezatura said...

I dont know how i got here but im sure i will be stopping bye every morning.

AnyaPosh said...

I liked that. That sounds like a pretty healthy relationship to me, because you're not all whipped about her...you still reserved your hateful eccentricities despite all the love.
