I can’t make you change your mind. I just wish you could see the good inside yourself that I see. I know I’m intense but you do deserve me - and I sure as hell deserve a guy like you for a change. You’re good. You are kind, reasonable, responsible, and most of all compassionate. I love everything about you.
And its not even that I love you because you are these things, because I COULD probably find someone who was also these things… But they aren’t you. And that’s what I love about you. I love you for your faults, your mistakes, because they make you you. I love you for your good qualities because they are there because you are you. I just love you for you.
I don’t have an exact reason why I love you, other than the fact that you are who you are. So I suggest you shut up about not deserving me, and kiss me like they do in the movies. Because I love you. And you leaving or you staying isn’t gonna change that. Only one of them will leave me heartbroken and one isn’t.
And it’s true that I don’t want to be with someone who doesn’t want me back.. But you DID say you love me - that you want me, you admire and care for me; that you want to be with me and love me and give me all that you can.
I don’t care if you are rich or poor, busy or lazy. I love YOU - YOU with your busy schedule, you with your old car, you with your empty wallet. I want you with your scruffy face and your calloused hands and the dirt under your nails. I want you with your late nights and your early mornings and your hour long coffee sessions in the morning. I want you with your love of guitars and your passion for giving. I want you with your doubts and your troubles and bad dreams. I want you with your machismo and your insecurities. I want the good, the bad, the ugly. I want it all. I want you with your bumps and your bruises and your victories. I want all of you. I’ve wanted you since we met, I want you now, I will want you for days, weeks, months to come.
I love you if you do or don’t love me back. But you DID say you love me.
I can’t keep you from leaving, but I’ll still love you either way. Be mine.
