Just randomly at 1am last night, had nothing better to do (that's obviously a lie. I could have read, slept, anything but THIS!!)

Inspired from the poem (otherwise fictitious) that Julia Stiles reads in the end for Heath Ledger in "10 Things I Hate About You".
{ I hate the way you talk to me, and the way you cut your hair. I hate the way you drive my car. I hate it when you stare. I hate your big dumb combat boots, and the way you read my mind. I hate you so much it makes me sick; it even makes me rhyme. I hate it, I hate the way you're always right. I hate it when you lie. I hate it when you make me laugh, even worse when you make me cry. I hate it when you're not around, and the fact that you didn't call. But mostly I hate the way I don't hate you. Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.}
This is what my version is like:

I hate you for the fact that you know me so well,
I hate to think of the moment for you when I fell.

I hate to cry whenever I think of you,
I hate that with each other, we no longer have anything to do.

I hate the paths that I now have to travel alone,
I hate to admit that from my life you're gone.

I hate everything that reminds me of you,
I hate the fact that I don't really hate them too.

I hate to see how you just don't care,
I hate to know there is nothing we anymore share.

I hate to dream all day (and night) about you,
I hate the fact that you still just see through.
I hate how you threw me out of you life,
I hate the fact, that without you it's so hard to survive.

I hate to come up with excuses so that we can meet,
I hate that without you, I feel so incomplete.

I hate to be always giving you a thought,
I hate it so much because you still mean hell a lot.
I hate it when out of the blue I get your text,
I hate it when I spend hours thinking-what next?

I hate the fact that I can hate you never,
Because loving you once, now means loving you forever!!

P.S.: No (questioning) comments, please!

This is beautiful and meaningful. And actually true. Like, we can kind of relate to it. In our lives.

After so much has been said and done. I'm so sure we can relate to it.
