Mixed Emotions

I don’t need you.

I don’t need your annoying laughter

Your smiles that were forced and fake.


I don’t want you.

I don’t want your pictures

Your texts checking up on my sake.


I don’t care about you.

I don’t care that you hurt

Or that it’s because of me.


I hate you.

I hate what you’ve done

And everything you will be.


I love you.

I love who you are

And all that we’ve shared.


I care for you.

I know your struggles

And to fight them I’m prepared.


I want you.
I want your attention

And your want for me.


I need you.

I need you as if you were food

And food you are to be.
