I will love you.
I will love you though you poison me.
I will love you though you torture me.
I will love, learn to love, until I am no longer afraid of you.
I will love you in a way that I do not love a lover –
I will love you and not listen to you.
I will love you and give you only limited attention,
yet I will love you endlessly.
I will choose to doubt you.
I will choose to question you.
I will choose myself. Over you, my love,
And my sweet darling, I will not believe you.
Only kindness and affection,
Only love but not attention,
Only these I will offer you
Until you cave in.
The day will come. I know it will,
And your dark eyes will turn blue and bright.
You’ll flower and bloom, and you’ll love me again,
But not in the way you do now.
For now, I will love you,
Though you’re cruel and mad.
And for now, be the same, in your own twisted way,
and by loving you I’ll love Me.
