Hate Me Like You Loved Me
by Mariah E. Wilson

Walking away is hardest
when your tears fall like rain
evaporate into chains
shackle me to the floor.
I don’t want to leave
you like this. My arms itch
to embrace you.
I could step forward
crush you into me,
breathe you in again,
but there’s a million
miles between us now.
Walking away is easiest
when I make you
hate me. It’s easier to abandon
you angry, than leave
with your heart tucked
in my pocket, its strings
tether us, forever together.
It’s easier to desert you
if I cut them. Sever the ties
that bind. Though hurting
you kills me,
I can’t leave you
still loving me
like you do.
