Can I Ask You Why?

 

What makes you hate me?

Your dislike is palpable,

I can feel it every day.

And yet I don’t know you;

you certainly don’t know me.

I’m nothing to you,

maybe not even a name

and yet your scorn

is all too clear.

I’ve never attacked

anything that you’ve written;

the opposite would be true,

and yet it seems unwittingly

that I’ve made an enemy out of you.

I’m lost in trying to figure out

some past indiscretion,

something that could have caused

this animosity.

So, okay, go ahead,

hate me;

but can I ask you why?
