Perhaps I should just be grateful.
(And I am, my sweet love, I swear it.)
For you know you are the light of my life,
and the match to my very soul.
My darling, my heart.
You have done things for me that no one
would ever understand.
And explaining the way I care for you, my undying love, neverending affection...
when you (seemingly) do not deserve it -
it is sometimes a most difficult and demanding task.
And many I've encountered find me particularly stupid, and naïve, and self-destructive.
But I know the things we have done for each other,
I know why I care for you, and will continue to.
I know why the affection never goes away,
I know why it never fades.
I know the secrets of our hearts.
(Aside from my daily delusions.)
These moments of clarity come and they go,
and they are not always easy to find.
But when I do, I cling to them for my very life.
And I am grateful, so grateful, so in love with you.
Your voice, your eyes, your body, your mind.
The thought of your very existence.
How could I explain what you mean to me
with mere words?
But I am also feeling rather guilty...
because it is never, EVER, enough.
Not when I want more, more, more,
I have got to have it ALL.
I am forever grateful for all of the small things
you have done for me.
But my love,
this life without you?
It will never, EVER, be enough.
I say these things,
because I trust you to understand
what I mean.

I actually don't know anything. So.
