I need to flush you from my veins
Like a nasty lingering drug
A body full of pain you’ve dealt
Too much baggage for me to lug.

I can’t deny you give me pleasure
I swim in all your lust
But usually negative thoughts override
And all my lovin bites the dust.

I want and need so much from you
But time is always an issue
If not that, then friends and drugs
You may as well pass me a tissue.

I miss that time not long ago
You made my body quiver
Now you just spend all your time
Fucking with your liver.

I love staring in your big blue eyes
But hate them when they’re black
Can’t you see the pain I’m in??
I don’t know if I want you back.

We both hate change and are stubborn
Something like a wild mule
I don’t know where we’ve decided to head
But we’ll both need plenty of fuel.

I really hate you…Most days I love you
Always a lingering thought
A song or brand name you like
You are stuck in my head….caught.

Gut feelings say it’s all but done
You really don’t seem to care
Maybe the obvious is really blatant
End it now…nothing is left there.

    Not bad, I would only suggest that you watch your verbiage. Some of the lines are a little clunky. Though your rhyme scheme is good, well played through out the poem. The only question to be asked though is what is meant to be seen or imagined with this poem. I’ve got conflicting images in my head which aren’t completely connected when reading this poem.
