 210. You Still Care
(Thanks to Amy LP for the starter line)

What you want,
& I want,
Are two different things...
But only because
We can't forgive
Ourselves
Or each other.

I hate you
Because you
Remind me
Of all my own
Self loathing.

You hate me
Because I betrayed
You,
When I was
Too angry
To think
How much
I would regret it.

Right now
You are filling
In the blanks
With your own
Life
And
This could be
A conversation
Between
You
And the one
You lovedů
But we never really stop
Do we,
Just the fact
That we are
Angry as %^&
Means we still care.

That's the rub.
The fact that
You are still
Holding on
Means
You still care.
We are still
Holding onto
The knife
Twisting it
Hoping it hurts
Them,
Only to find
We have
Committed
Seppuku.
