Control

Would you like to stay the night?

turns to

I'd love it if you stayed the night.

turns to

I already planned our breakfast for tomorrow.

turns to

You can't leave yet! We're just getting started.

turns to

No, you can't leave.

turns to

I won't let you leave. 

turns to

I'll smack you if you try to leave.

turns to

I love you. You love me, so prove it. Give yourself to me.

turns to

I'll beat you again if you try that. 

turns to

I only hit you because I love you.

turns to

You like getting hit don't you? You love me.

turns to

You are nothing without me.

turns to

I'm sorry.

turns to

No I'm not.

turns to

We have sex when I want. It's your job to please me.

turns to

I'm sorry, but you need to be sorry too.

turns to

I'll kill you.

turns to

I love you,

turns to hate.

 

Don't confuse love with control.  

It's not because they love you. It's because they want control.
