"I am the teacher; You are the student. I'm supposed to teach and you're supposed to sit there and look stupid." ~ Althalus


The looks you give
The laughs we have
The smiles you share
The jokes no one gets

All amounts to what?

I love you
But I don’t.

All the times you’ve made me laugh
All the times you’ve given me a smile
All the times you’ve changed my day
All the times you’ve built my trust

All amounts to what?

I love you
But I don’t.

You bring me joy
You build my faith
You erase sad thoughts
You get me through my day

But it all amounts to what?

I love you
But I don’t.

As simple as a touch
As simple as a glance
As simple as a word
As simple as a thought

All amounting to what?

I love you…
But I don’t.

You’re my brother in Christ, and I love you.
You’re my best friend, and I love you.
But even with all of that…I don’t.

The author's comments:
A stupid little thing I wrote one night...Emotions are complicated. It's one thing to love someone. It's a completely different thing to be in love with them. I love Michael. I seriously do...but I'm far from being in love with him.
