You may despise me
ignore my presence or my yearning or my words
You may detest me
throw me in deep ravine without any accord

You may demean me,
put a quoit around my thoughts
shred me,
loathe me for being so bold

You can do all such atrocities
of many shades and fold
but I know
all such scornful views are a charade
and you are disguised,
for you cannot live without me even in your thoughts
