Because I Love you, Because You Love me

Because I love you,

I hit you,

Only to put you in your place.

Because I love you,

I want you to text me every day,

I don't want you to text anyone else.

Because I love you,

I don't want you to hang out with him anymore,

He looks at you pervertedly.

What do you mean he likes you as a friend?

Shut up.

Because I love you, 

I want you to change your clothes,

The ones you wear make you look like a whore, we can't have that.

Because I love you,

I make you cry,

Although I don't understand why you're crying,

I should be the one embarassed because I'm with you.

Because you love me, 

You treat me like a god.

All your family and friends say i'm no good,

But you stay.

Because you love me,

You change your clothes for me,

You don't look like a whore anymore. 

Good.

Because you love me,

You stop talking to him,

Thank you.

Because you love me,

You start to get help for us.

I hate you.

Because you love me,

We go to this therapy session.

Physical Abuser.

Because you love me,

You leave me. 

You left me alone.

I'm alone.

Because you love me, 

You cry, you cry for days and you think of coming back.

It's ok to cry, 

Everyone cries.

Because you love me,

You find someone better,

He treats you much better than I did, from what i've heard.

Because you love me, 

You don't talk to me ever again,

You move on,

And you're happy.
