I hate you

Sharing one of my poems inspired by Slyvia Plath’s quotes. She would have been 86 today.

“Yes, there is joy, fulfillment and companionship—but the loneliness of the soul in its appalling self-consciousness is horrible and overpowering.”
—Sylvia Plath

I hate you for replacing my
loneliness with your balmy presence
With my soliloquy
with your sweet symphonies
With my moments of monotonous emotions
with a rainbow laced with
Love
Desire
Passion
And everything in between

My eternal silences
With your giggles and laughter
filling and seeping in the gaps in between
where you have secretly lightened the
deep dark corners of my heart
with your moonlight presence

Playing hide and seek
With your smile
as bright as crackling fireworks
With your aura
your illuminating presence
consuming my darkness from within

I hate you for taking away the
sorrow which was mine
my mind seeded
with my forlorn thoughts
And filled it with love
which is yours
Oh! I hate you
for loving me so deeply.

    as bright as crackling fireworks
    With your aura
    your illuminating presence
    consuming my darkness from within

    Especially loved this part 🙂
