Because I Love You

Because I Love You

 

because I Love you

wear your seatbelt

study for your test

get some rest

meet my family

because I Love you 

 

because I Dont Love you 

leave your friends

stop talking so much

dont be stupid 

you have to ask me first

because I Dont Love you 

 

because I Love you 

here is my favorite sweatshirt 

let me read your favorite book

i want to spend time with your family  

go have fun, i trust you

because I Love you

 

because I Dont Love you

give me your phone

you cannot wear that

you cannot talk to him

dont tell anyone we are together

because I Dont Love you

 

because I Love you

that means i want you safe

that i  want your trust, in return for mine

that i want you to be happy 

that i never want to hurt you

I Love you

 

because I Dont Love you

that means i want to control you

that means you are mine and mine only

that means i have no respect for you 

that means i want to hurt you

i Dont Love you 

 

the difference between when someone Loves you and when someone Doesn’t is a line that blurs easily,

 we base our ideas of Love off of social media and movies and what society says love is. 

 

we must determine for ourselves if they really Love us,

 someone that makes you feel safe and happy and wanted is what Love is is. “Because I Love you” should never make you feel obligated or unsafe.
