"I love you!" I'd say.

"I hate you," she'd say.

"I hate that you hate me," I'd say.

"I love that you hate that I hate you," she'd say.

"Make love to me," I'd say.

"I'll fuck you, not make love," she'd say.

"Works for me," I'd say.

"Works for me," she'd say.

I'd say, "It's a thin line..."

"...between love and hate," she'd say.

I died.

"They say you hurt the ones you love the most," she said, staring at my coffin as if her intentions and words had been loving the entire time. "It's a thin line..."

"...between love and hate," I said, rolling my eyes in heaven.
