Title: Between Love & Hate

Is there a name for that place we go
Between love and hate, but are afraid to show
The place where smiles turn into tears
And one more day turns into years

Do you know that place where someone's touch
Unexplainably turns from pleasure to pain
Of this place do you know of such
Where blue skies fall like rain

Where the playful wink becomes a stare
And the light you see in their eye, becomes a glare
The heartfelt kisses of long ago
Now a peck on the cheek, just for show

Trusting each other, becomes suspicions untold
Never each other again to hold
The I love you becomes I don't care
The same dreams you no longer share

Is that place fear or maybe despair
When you realize they no longer care
Is there a name for that place we go
Between love and hate, but are afraid to show
