hmmph…   [POEM]

love don’t mean a damned thing
to a hate long been felt
and with someone is lonely still
when you love all by yourself

mirrors hate the face they see
when they know that face to lie
the dark is prone to comfort self,
wear a shadow for disguise

feeling grows quite numb to touch
silence makes its sound
going makes it easier
staying takes you down

for trying this is what you get
the rest of what could be
the trouble is in having faith
of another persons please.
