Just because I often curse you
from the bottom of my heart
doesn’t mean that I don’t love you
as the bullseye loves the dart.
Just because I’d like to slap you
in the belly with a fish
doesn’t mean that loving you
is not my dearest wish.
Just because I’d like to kill you
with a bullet in the head
doesn’t mean that I’m not staying
in your gently scented bed.
