Her Name

Hate with a hint of longing.
Scorn with a tinge of craving.

Disdain with shades of desire.
Loathing laced with fire.

A curse yet almost a prayer.
A scream and a whisper.

A war-cry and a lullaby.
Your truth and your lie.

As your lips curl in a slur,
Your eyes, they remember.

For every shame in her name,
I wish mine carries the same.
