Mixed Emotions

by Mark

You’ve raped
My best dreams
Into nightmares.

My hate for you
will fill flasks twice
over, dropping me to
my knees consuming
every bittersweet sip.

You’ve changed my
trips from white – bread
to ham on rye. Covered
me in a psychedelic glaze
to relish all phases.

My love for you
Is always
After all time.
