Because I love you

Because I love you...

I often dream about you.

Because I love you...

I consistently find myself thinking about you.

Because I love you... 

I don't want your attention going elsewhere.

Because I love you...

I want you to respond to me with care.

 

Because I "love you"...

I hate when you don't text me back right away.

Because I "love you"...

I get angry when you compliment other people.

Because I "love you"...

I verbally abuse you to get my point across.

But it's all because I "love you"...

 

 

Because you "love me"...

I'm living every day in fear.

Because you "love me"... 

I can't engage in conversation with new people.

Because you "love me"...

I feel trapped with a never-ending cycle of tears.

Because you "love me"...

I'm becoming depressed and it's high time I got myself out of it.

 

Because I loved you...

I stayed in bathing in your toxicity. 

Because I loved you...

I tried to help you find your serendipity.

Because I loved you...

I only wanted you to succeed.

Because I loved you...

I helped you work towards your degree.

 

Because I care for myself...

I decided to leave.

Because I care for my health...

I decided to move on.

Because I cared for my sanity...

I took a break from dating and rebuilt relationships with friends.

Because I care for my future...

I taught myself to suceed and not to need, 

Someone like you, 

Who almost ruined everything for me. 

 

Because I left...

I chanced upon the right guy.

Because I left...

I found someone that doesn't treat me like a fly.

Because I left...

I found someone who gives me freedom.

Because I left...

I found someone who respects me.

Because I left...

I found someone who empowers me.

Because I left...

I've found my own long-lost serendipity.
