I understand Love to be the appreciation of What you can give.
No, love is love for the sake of love.
But I see nothing innocent, just pure. “I appreciate you for the way you make me feel” A.k.A “I appreciate you for what you give to me” A.K.A “I love you.”
Sure it’s a little sweet but It’s the only time you don’t mind being Positively manipulated, Positively used. And you balance the scales with: “I love you too”.
I feed off of you, As you feed off of me, And we’ll call this relationship ‘healthy’ And here we are. Bound by a verbal contract, Constantly in contact. And I am stuck in your orbit oblivious as To where I am headed. I don’t understand this. I look for the exit, Because you are hungry, And I am poor.
