Love the Way You Hate

How your eyebrows rise
when I start to speak.
How your mouth tries to swallow
your envy’s upcoming leak.

How I love to see your
angered-colored face.
How I admire how you
contain such hateful maze.

And in case you haven’t heard it yet,
you got to love before you can hate.

Note: I am not quite sure if this suits the prompt (irony). Please enlighten me, Frank. 🙂 Thank you!

  1. OH MY GOSH! That’s exactly what I told my husband but he refuses to concede. Stubborn man. I had mentioned to him that you can only reach that level of anger if you were hurt, wounded, stuff like that. He says, “I hate my teacher, and I never loved her.” :/ What can I say to that, Rosemarie?!

  2. Love and hate are indeed intertwined.
    But hate doesn’t necessarily follow love, that said, it is possible to love to hate someone…
    Kind regards

  3. Like so many others above have said – there’s a tiny, fine line between love and hate. Funny how in both cases, the person cares so much one way or another to feel such strong emotions too.

  4. It’s perfect for the prompt 🙂 Love and hate are two sides of a coin. Sometimes you need to feel both to understand each of them. At least that’s what I think 😀
