Hate or Pity? – Written Saturday 26th November 2005 (Aged 30)

Hate or Pity?

i want to destroy you
i want to hurt you
i want to crush you
such is,
the irrationality
and power of my anger
i want you to suffer
just like,
i am suffering now
to feel the pain –
that i feel flowing from my veins
i want to hit you
or just hit out
i never want to feel like this again
then, suddenly, in sparse moments
i realise that you are a child
one that seems to have never felt loved
and never felt wanted
and that must inform,
the way you behave
to me you are a cold empty shell
how can i hate someone like that
i try to feel pity, but it is a hard sell
