I Hate the Fact

I hate the way he whispers
in your hair when I'm around.
I hate the way you close the door
And pretend there's not a sound.
I hate the way you giggle
like you're happy, 'cause you're not
I hate the way I tell myself
I won't give this a thought.

I hate that this is temporary,
everything will change.
I hate the way you look at me,
you think that I'm insane.
I hate his twisted eyebrows
and his soft but piercing stare.
I hate that you convince yourself
you make a perfect pair.

I knew you as a child,
yes, I knew you better then.
Getting to know you better, now,
is something I intend.
It's hard, though, when he holds you close,
and knows I know the truth.
It's hard, though, when you hold his hand
and won't accept the proof.

I've made my own mistakes, you know.
I'm not one to pretend.
I'd take my own advice, you know,
if I could do it all again.
I've learned a few hard lessons,
guess they shaped me as I grew.
I think about it now,
the same will happen to you.

I hate him for the way I know
he'll let you down one night.
I hate there's nothing I can do
to help you learn to fight.
I hate the fact I care to much,
I just can't help you see.
But I know you're just becoming
the beautiful woman to be.

Hello to any awesome new followers, and welcome!  Don't worry, I only rarely inflict my "poems" upon you all.

It's a tough position to be in. Especially when they don't want to hear what you have to say, they accuse you of bringing false evidence and wanting to destroy their happiness.

I lost my best friend because of a relationship like that once. We barely speak anymore, and it still hurts.

Aww, thanks Tabs! I honestly thought nobody was going to comment on this.

It's actually kind of an amalgamation of a few senerios I could think of. I bet we're all familiar with the idea on some level :(
