for katarina stratford (365 pieces – january 9th)

trying in vain
to name
ten things i hate about you

because when you’re not here
it would be easier

let me count the ways

i hate, i hate, i hate
i hate that you’re not here.


i hate that i’m not there.
(especially this one)



there should be more
there must

and yet

absence is doing
what the wise folks say

this heart grows fonder / brighter / wider
while you’re away

so mostly
as so eloquently is was put
(julia stiles pouting ponytailed relatable riot grrling voice)

i hate the way i don’t hate you

there’s nothing can be done
you’re mine

deal with it, bitch.

Basically, I deal in words.
