Ten things I hate about you

The hit 90s movie, ’10 things I hate about you’ was a classic high school romance and one of my favourite movies. The movie has an impassioned poem by a hurt and much in love young girl, a poem that I love. The poem shares the movie’s title.
10 things I hate about you
I hate the way you talk to me
And the way you cut your hair
I hate the way you drive my car
I hate it when you stare
I hate your big dumb combat boots
And the way you read my mind
I hate you so much that it makes me sick
It even makes me rhyme
I hate the way you’re always right
I hate it when you lie
I hate it when you make me laugh
Even worse when you make me cry
I hate the way you’re not around
And the fact that you didn’t came
But mostly I hate the way I don’t hate you
Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.

The poem is very teenage, so I decided to try my hand at poetry and give this poem a little mature twist.

10 things I still hate about you
I hate the way you leave when I cry
I hate it when my eyes don’t meet yours across a crowded room
I hate it that you don’t walk me back to my house nor do you call to find out if I reached alright
I hate the way you don’t notice the effort I put into looking good for you
I hate the way the hollowness in my heart grows while I try to complete yours
I hate it when you don’t understand the little things I do to gain your attention
I hate it when you talk to her or her or her
I hate it when you walk away without looking back even once
I hate that I care about you more than you do about me
I hate that I can’t imagine my future without you in it.
