Opposites Attract

You do not understand. 

If you understood, then you would not ask me silly questions. 

 

What is silly about what I asked? 

You asked me if I love you.

Well, do you?  

I love you, like I love everything else that has ever hurt me. 

How is that? 

I love you so closely, I can’t feel the knife. 

I love you so tenderly, I ignore your sharp words.

I love you so deeply, I can’t leave although your screams tell me that you will never be pleased. 

I never scream at you. 

Well what do you call- this. 

Love.
