Here is my promise.. Maybe I am, after all, getting a lil mushy days! :S
I hate the way you talk to me, and the way you cut your hair.
I hate the way you drive your car.
I hate it when you stare.
I hate your deep green eyes, and the way you read my mind.
I hate you so much 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 it when you’re not around, and the fact that you never call.
But mostly I hate the way I don’t hate you.
Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.
The way you look into my eyes, It scares me
The way you say “I love you”, It scares me
The way you know just what to say, It scares me
The ways you scare me, I love it
That’s all, folks!

Now, I’m not really a fan of poems, mushy or otherwise, but this one here, by Elizabeth Barret Browing, i like. Maybe a better suiting title would be If Love Me Thou Must, but anyway.. Here is the wonderful Poem:
Except for love’s sake only. Do not say
“I love her for her smile her look her way
Of speaking gently, for a trick of thought
That falls in well with mine, and certes brought
A sense of ease on such a day”
For these things in themselves, Beloved, may
Be changed, or change for thee, and love, so wrought,
May be unwrought so. Neither love me for
Thine own dear pity’s wiping my cheek dry,
A creature might forget to weep, who bore
Thy comfort long, and lose thy love thereby!
But love me for love’s sake, that evermore
Thou may’st love on, through love’s eternity.
