It’s amazing that the month is flying by so fast- we’re nearly half way there! The prompt for day 10 was to to write an “un-love” poem which is “a poem of sarcastic-dislike”. Since I had so much fun writing The Nightmares with all the formatting, I decided to do something different for this one too, just for fun. Granted, though, this one took much longer than the other one- I finished just on time.
I Don't Unlove You,
I am not angry at you. Just as trees don't let leaves go, and birds don't fly
south, I am not angry with you. I have full faith left in you. I'm sure you will not fail me just as the rain won’t
pour down hard in London nor snow mid April in Toronto, I have full faith left in you.
I am not bitter, no sir, do not think of such things. Just as sugar is not sweet, and lemons
aren’t at all sour, I am not bitter. I have already forgiven you, friend, have no fear. Just as the city
exempts those that enter its territory and fish don’t mind being caught,
I have already forgiven you. I don’t unlove you, of course not, just as Harry and Tom were best friends and Poseidon never cursed
Odysseus to wander at sea for ten years, I don't unlove you. Not even a little bit. No, actually, I hate you.
Note: Harry and Tom refer to Harry Potter and Tom Riddle (Voldemort) from J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, while Posedion is the Greek god of the sea and the Odysseus a legendary Greek king of Ithaca (though I’m referring to an event from Homer’s the Odyssey
