Hate

Sometimes I wonder if you hate
yourself the way I hate
myself, but I don't
ask,
after all these years I still don't
ask,
I just don't
care
     enough.

This make me think of Elie Wiesel:

The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference...

In difference is the sure slap of someone who is just over it all. Sending good vibes your way...poof! Bye bye baddies

The ultimate rejection... indifference. You always know just how to use words to the greatest effect.
