R.S. Mallari

I Love You?

I hate the way you walk
Despise the way you look
Loathe your innocent smile
Yet I can spot you from a mile

I can’t stand it when you talk
Merely listening makes me choke
Just being near you is torture
Yet I want to be still the more

Something about you that I hate
That I yearn to see everyday
Your presence I pretty much detest
Yet I desire to see your face

Sometimes I just want to get away
But at night, to be with you I pray
Wish I could just let this subside
Yet it’s my dream to be by your side

"There is a thin line between hatred and love. Sometimes you say you hate someone but the truth is you are longing for that someone whenever she/he is not around." - Love Quotes

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.

Hello Ronald,
A real conflict between real emotions in this poem.
It certainly demonstrates, that very thin line, of love and hate.

I do hope love will win though!
Best wishes to you,

I just remembered during high school that there is this particular girl whom I thought I hate, unconsciously however I was beginning to love her.

I won already Eileen, I have my wife for 10 years A Decade of Love and Friendship (Anniversary Poem).

Through poetry we can inspire others, we can make someone smile and words can make others cry be it of joy or sadness.
