Hate Concession

Do you feel justified as you warm up to my friends?

After you cast me out like a unwanted trend.

Then painted a mosaic from a difficult past.

And sent me packing like a useless outcast.

You brought in the wolf for an intimidation endeavor.

First time for everything and never say never.

Regret has a voice that screams like a bird.

That pain hits so hard, a discouraging word.

Master of confusion. You’re a talented chap.

The bitter cold matches the sting of your slap.

So, I know we’re not perfect and we all make mistakes.

But if this is love then I’ll settle for hate.
