I have to block out thoughts of you, so I don't lose my head
They crawl in like a cockroach leaving babies in my bed
Dropping little reels of tape, to remind me that I'm alone
Playing movies in my head that make a porno feel like home.

The cold wind whipped Hiei's cloak about his ankles

as he gazed toward the icy peaks of his homeland.

He gripped the teardrop necklace hanging from his neck,

crimson eyes filled with uncontrollable rage.

Taking in one last look, he turned his back forever.


There's a burning in my pride, and a nervous bleeding in my brain
An ounce of peace is all I want for you, will you never call again?
And will you never say that you love me, just to put it in my face?
And will you never try to reach me, it is I that wanted space.

"Can't you see I don't want you?" Hiei screamed, shoving Kurama away.

Kurama bowed his head, a solitary tear escaping his emerald eye.

"Hiei," said the redhead softly. "Let me in. Please. I love you."

The fire demon longed to fall into his partners open arms.

"I don't need you. I don't love you," growled Hiei fiercely.

Hate me today
Hate me tomorrow
Hate me for all the things I didn't do for you
Hate me in ways, yeah ways hard to swallow
Hate me so you can finally see what's good for you.

Hiei stared at his reflection in the water.

"I hate you," he said to the demon staring back at him.

He heard footsteps, and spun around to face Kurama.

"I'm not giving up on you, my angel," said the fox softly.

Hiei closed his eyes, afraid to reveal his longing.

Hate me today
Hate me tomorrow
Hate me for all the things I didn't do for you
Hate me in ways, yeah ways hard to swallow
Hate me so you can finally see what's good for you

"Kurama." The Koorime cautiously approached his companion.

"Kurama," he repeated, his voice breaking.

Without a word the spirit fox embraced his small comrade.

"I don't know how to love," whispered Hiei.

"Shh," Kurama said gently. "Let me show you."
