nothing hurts

[Why am I good at emo poetry? I’d like to turn out a technical manual someday instead. Oh, well.]

if you cannot love me
then hate me
or something
just please don’t feel nothing at all
i can’t bear the thought
you’d forget what we had
and the shadow i cast on your wall

though it may not be permanent
right
or desirable
i thought we mattered to us
for a moment
don’t say that we shouldn’t have;
i know that better than you
all the times i gave up
the times i looked at you
with disdain
with disapproval
with disappointment in my eyes

so if you’ve found someone that can love you
and not just pretend
you’re one better than me
i wish what we had wasn’t empty
how i tried to fill it
ignore what it didn’t mean
lie through my teeth
and imagine the prospect i couldn’t bear would
become somehow appealing to me

i would hate myself, wouldn’t i?

so if you cannot love me
then hate me
or something
but please don’t feel nothing
that hurts
worse than anything
