I love you,babe.I

I love you,babe.

I only manipulate you into doing what I want because I love you.

I tell you not to hang out with your friends, because I want you to spend every minute of your life with me, because I love you.

I don't allow you to wear those clothes that show off your body because it is only mine to appreciate, I don't anybody else laying eyes on you, because I love you. You're mine, don't you see, mine. Don't talk anybody else, you don't belong to them.

You're my property and I own you, you have to do everything in your power to please me, because I love you, you don't want me to stop loving you.

I don't want to let you suceed in your life, I don't want you to leave me behind, but can't you see it is because I love you. Imagine how I would feel, having a partner who is better than me. Now wouldn't I look stupid? I don't want to be proud of you for being succesful, because I love you.

See, it's not that I enjoy beating you, it's just that sometimes you're not you, you're not the one I love, so I only do that because I love you. You see, you're nothing more than an object to me, something I can mold into whatever I want. Nothing more than a solid I can turn into liquid and form into whatever shape I want.

I feel like sometimes you don't love me back.

You can't leave me though, you have no where else to turn to.You have no one else, you're alone, and I'm the only one who cares about you. You've pushed away all your friends and family, remember? I told you to, because I love you, and I'm the only one you need to talk to. It's not that I'm selfish, it's that, other people don't love you like I do, who care if it's your family?

I only lower your self esteem because I love you.

Lord knows, your naive little mind might believe that you're something more than my moldable girlfriend. And you might convince youself that there's someone out there who will love you like I do.

Where else are you going to find someone that loves you as much as I do? Let's face it, you're not the prettiest, or the smartest, and your personality is average at most. I only accept you as you are because I love you, but no one else will.

And if one day our relationship leads you to your death, well, it is only because I loved you.
