Mixed Emotions



You say you’re sorry

But I stood by every lie you told

If this was me dying by the blow of Ali

You’d cook soup and say you had a cold.


Stagger, you drunkard

Grammar, you illiterate

You ruthless fool, burn

If the roof was on fire

You’d rather watch the premiere of a show.


You liar,

You’d make Hades happy to open the underworld.

Your sagehood departed right from your mother’s womb.


Dear lord, help me before I murder you.

I hate you, I love you

Waiting for your apologies,

I hate that I love you

I need to hear your stories,

I die in mixed emotions for you.
