A little poem about love & hate, and how the two connect for me.

When things got rough,
I thought I could count on you.
When tears started to fall,
I thought I could trust you.
When my pain grew,
I knew you'd be there.
Whatever happened to that faith, love and trust?
Something that seemed so pure,
twisted into something painful.
Sometimes, I can almost remember the times
when there were no problems.
Yet the hate always sinks back in…
Maybe someday,
the memories will fade.
Even if I have to give up the good ones-
at least the pain will be gone too.
I'm tired of remembering you,
and everything we lost.
One last thought I'd like to share,
even though you wont want to hear it…
The walls I surrounded myself with,
were never meant to keep you out.
I was on guard, that's all,
Waiting to see who had the strength to break though.
You failed, I know that now.
I also know the fault is mine as much as yours,
but that doesn't make it any easier to deal with.
I started a chain reaction,
now everything is going wrong.
I sympathize- I know you feel the same.
