Do I dare or do I not?
Gaze upon your heathen skin
You're everything I hate, and yet
You're dancing in my mind again
You have caused me grievous pain
My soul is still recuperating
Your cruel words have seethed my shell
But my heart is not cooperating
What is this fine line we draw?
Between what we hate and what we love?
What doesn't kill us makes us stronger,
But what if I don't survive the above?
Please speak softly and tread with ease,
'fore you ricochet off my fragile shell.
You're everything I've grown to hate,
But my heart just won't cooperate.
