Don't believe you should accept everything just to be in love. Be in love with someone who cares not with the idea of love itself.

What do I have to say? What excuse do I have for you today? Though they all end with the same phrase "...but he still loves me." You ignore me : "Oh he was busy all day and though he had time for this and that he just couldn't make the time for me. BUT he still loves me" You hurt me : "Oh he didn't know that would upset me. He was only kidding. BUT he still loves me". More and more on and on, I convince myself that every "mistake" you make is justified. I make it all alright and yet I wonder why I always end up in the same position every night: in a ball, on the bed, drowned in tears. Fighting away the urges to give it all up...ALONE. I never want to just let you be wrong. Never want to let you own up to your mistakes. When will I learn that the more excuses I make, the more willing you'll be to do more. Why can't I open my eyes up and see that you only take as many steps as I allow. You only do the things that I make seem okay. And I ONLY make excuses for you. But why? Is it because I'm blind. Is it because I'm weak? No it's because I'm just so sure that you love me just as much as I KNOW I love you. And deep down I know you have to support who you love. So I make myself believe I have to defend you and have your back even if it means turning my back on myself because I just know "you still love me"
