Last night I wrote I loved you and your oatmeal cookies; tonight I write I hate you but I still love your oatmeal cookies.
Falling In Hate II
You were correct when you made the mistake of leaving me. I was wrong when I made the right decision to let you go. I won’t laugh at being so sad if you won’t cry at being so happy. Now one loves to hate and one hates to love.
