Kinda angsty?

I love you

I love your smile

The way your eyes light up when you grin

I love your sense of humor

And how tactile you are

Your silence is as comforting to me as your warm embrace

You do not fear to correct or admonish me.

You ripped me from my shell shamelessly

I love you, but…

It hurts.

Hurts to see you smile at others

Hurts to watch your eyes light up at her approach

To see you laugh with her,

To see you two clinging together like a vine.

It makes my heart hurt to watch/imagine you… and her intimate

I love you, but I HATE you.

This is beautiful! I felt gutwrenching sadness when you switched from the happy to the sad perspective. I love the way you wrote this. Your feeling comes across so well! (: Good job!

Oh my gosh very well written,as first you started by expressing your love and then you expressed what we didn't expect that the reason why you love and hate at the same time, for what it is not yours,if it is meant to be for you it would but if not then you just need to let it go, i really feel piety for you

I read your "Can't sleep" one just before this one. I'm hooked. I just found this site today and posted myself but it didn't take :(.

I'm excited to read the rest of your Writings.
