I guess that’s love

there are times where i
want to bash your face in
with a piece of rebar
and i would go as far
to smash your teeth in
against the curb
my hate towards you
may seem to perturb
but you’re just
chemically imbalanced
you’ve caused enough damage
so it’s time for your own
i know you hate loving me
and i love hating you
you are
infectious
pestilent
malignant
noxious
and i can’t get enough of you
so fuck you
i am dedicated to you
and i do the things that you
tell me to
but i guess that’s love
