    Wow. Risque, you took me to a roller coaster ride of emotions with this write. I liked it and think that is superb really. How you detailed the irony of this man against your liking is very engaging...but I think what you really wanted to say is that you love this man but you do not like him. I remember a TV series I saw once with the male lead kinda feeling this way.

    This has a beautiful tone, and a unique voice which is that of Risque.

      I enjoyed your interpretation! It's so interesting how a writer can be portraying one thing and a reader can get something else out of it.
      The poem is actually referencing the struggle of depression. It is an ugly dwelling with vile company, yet I have found myself getting comfortable knowing it is a place I tend to stay for long periods of time, and therefore tend to survive better if I fight it less.
