Ye Olde Bloggens are re-posts of old blogs
by Bridget Eileen - Writer in Providence, Rhode Island 

The following post was originally posted on one of Bridget Eileen’s old blogs: In the Pines, Neophyte Poetics, Bridget Eileen’s Commonplace Book, Dreaming Bridge Designs or A Vegetarian Notebook. They aren’t all fancy with photos and subheadings and search descriptions, or even that much content, sometimes. They’re here for posterity, because it’s fun to read the archives!

This is why.
Say this were a poem I submitted to the contest at
You have broken my heart into a million billion pieces
I f&*king hate you so much and i f(*king love you anyway
You are stupid and bad and evil
you are like the devil
In a black & red furnace eating my heart
I hate you but I love you anyway
Your a Bastard for cheating on me but still
I love you but I still hate you even though your bad
Their was no reisen 4 u to do this to me
I was the best to u
I hate you but I love u
n e way would then send me a letter:
