That is love.

Because I love you, 

I ignore you. 

Because I love you,

I control you.

Because I love you, 

I expect things from you.

Because I love you,

I keep you in line.

This is love? 

This is love. 

This is what you were taught was love.

This is what I was taught was love.

But I find love in your smile;

I noticed you no longer smile.

So this must not be it. 

Love is comfort.

Love is balance.

Love is compassion.

Love is trust and understanding and acceptance.

Love is us being independent yet still wanting to be with each other at the end of the day.

That is love. 

Because I love you, 

That will be our love.
