the things he says

because I love you, he says

you must stay with me

because I love you, he says

no one else ever will

because I love you, he says

do only what I tell you

but

the definition of love

says none of these things

love should not feel suffocating

love should feel empowering

to love someone else

should make you want to love yourself

instead of forceful affection

it should be

because I love you, he says

I will always support you

because I love you, he says

please love yourself

because I love you, he says

do the things that are best for you

-what love should be
