I have loved you before I knew myself

and managed to map out my own goals.

I have loved you, like nobody else

and I was content with affection bestowed.

I have loved you when you’ve dragged me through hell

and we haven’t reached a promised heaven.

I have loved you despite myself

and I was happy with seeing you well.

I have loved you in spite, for and in between

even though you weren’t inclined to extend the same curtsey.

I have loved you foolishly, as it seem

and I was grateful for the given opportunity.

I have loved you because I wanted to love

and in retrospect it doesn’t look fair to either of us.

Thus, I am breaking the cycle and walking forward.

…but I have loved you and be loving you afterwords.
