If I Told You That I Loved You

If I told you that I loved you
Would you tell me that too
Stand beside me
Keep me safe
And close to your heart

If I told you that I'd be there for you
Would you be there for me too
Hold me
Comfort me when the nights are cold
And nobody's home

If I told you that I needed you
Would you need me too
Sit next together
And keep each other warm
Safe from harm

If I said "I do" on that special day
Would you say it back to me
Would you even care if I loved you at all
If you made me cry all through the night

Even if I told you I loved you
You wouldn't love me back
You wouldn't even care
Sometimes life isn't fair!
It's easy to see what you're doing to me
And it's killing me to see you do this
But i might have to let you go

*cough* Well this is extremely relateable. Love poems are the hardest thing to post. I give you props for bravery. You might want to give this another look over because I found some type-o's. Try reading it backwards, that's usually what works for me, but I'm sure I've missed a lot in my stuff too.
