How Can I Hate You?

by jadrianrain

"If you hate me may as well plant me in a shallow grave..."

(Two years ago, I made a friend, and he sent this to me in a message during one of our conversations. I never got over it. And though I don't speak with him much now, he still inspired this.)

How can someone hate another they barely even know? How can someone hate another if unable to do so?

You tell me I should hate you

Yet I wonder why You’ve given me no reason No intention, no motive, no rhyme

You like science and guitar A regular geek, they say I could listen to you for hours And sent the day away

If time was less than fleeting...

And some days trice as long I would still be listening While writing you a song

How can someone hate another they barely even know? How can someone hate another if unable to do so? That is how the chorus would go…

How can I hate you? You’re amazing, you’re delightful. I haven’t a reason to

Let me take your pain away… Day by Day, you say, You put up with the madness You think you’re dragging me down But I’m just going up

Let me pull you from your darkness And shed away that skin Help me help you, please just let me

Because you’re always good enough.

You ask me if you’re worth it. You tell me how you feel. Every thought and every word Makes me sometimes wonder if you’re real.

It’s funny how your thoughts are dark, But I see a smile on your face. You don’t need to feel that Come, I’ll show you a secret place.

I couldn't hate you.

Really, how could I? I’m incapable, you see. So tell me, and answer me True and right There’s no one else here now…

How can someone hate another they barely even know?

How can someone hate another if unable to do so?
