"Isn't it time?",  a voice inside her head she heard
 
 
But there had been so many times, and words
 
 
meant leaving and leaving meant stay
 
 
and love meant hating and knowing the day
 
 
would finally come, like just any other
 
 
that the sun would rise and she'd leave her lover
 
 
 
 
 
But there isn't love and there isn't hate
 
 
and there wasn't friendship, it was all too late
 
 
Because somewhere between loving and hate
 
 
she finally admitted she never felt like.
 
 
Was it pride in proving she would never leave
 
 
that made her stay when voices believed,
 
 
through and through those wasteful days,
 
 
pretending to be to escape who she was
 
 
someone who didn't like you enough?
 
 
It is time she said.  It is time, she knew.
 
 
She hung her head with one last tear.
 
 
It hit the floor and said goodbye to you.
 
 
 
Somewhere between love and hate
 
 
if you don't have like, then it was always too late
