Because I love you, I'm going to leave blemishes of crimson and purple that cant be explained away.Because I love you, I know your every move; you can't leave unless I say.Because I love you, I'm going to make everything you've done seem small.Because I love you, I'll make you cower so that I can feel tall."Because I love you.." No. Because I love you, I'll spend every waking moment ensuring that I'm doing all I can to give you the world.Because I love you, I'll never raise a hand to you.Because I love you, you will never have to ask yourself what you did wrong.Because I love you, no marks will be left on you.Because I love you, you will never have to make excuses to your friends or utter the words "I deserved it."Because I love you, you're safe.
