This is the Man I Love

by Erin Jones



This here,
          this is the man I love.
  I cry my eyes out
              and,
yes,
          this is the man I love.
  I say I am happy
      as I beg for release of
                my misery,
but yes,
          this is the man I love.
  When I am with him
        I am the happiest person on earth,
            even better when we're alone,
    but when apart I am utterly sad,
              but this,
here,
          this is the man I love.
  As he pisses me off
        I'm about to cry,
and yet,
          this is the man I love.
  I hate him so much
              but,
as you know,
          this is the man I love.
  He doesn't even know
        the pain he causes me
yet
          this is the man I love.
  He laughs and he plays
              THIS,
THIS HERE,
          this is the man I love.
  I look up and see him looking at me,
        he smiles and I return it,
and
          this is the man I love.
  I watch him as he sleeps,
        eyes closed,
            gorgeous,
          this is the man I love.
  I fall asleep thinking of him,
        dream of him,
            wake up to him,
          this is the man I love.
This is the man I love.

love/hate, not opposites but extremes of the same passion. cautionary note: don't give up who you are in order to be with 'the man you love'.
