"Friendship isn't always easy, but there's no doubt it's worth fighting for."

You're beautiful.
You're worthless.

I love you.
I hate you.

How could anyone say you're annoying?
I just can't stand you.

I'll always be here for you.
I don't want to talk to you.

I want to make you feel special.
I want to tear you down.

You can trust me.
I'll betray you.

You're mine.
You belong to me.

I'll let you fly free.
I'll keep you in chains.

I'll never lay a hand on you.
I'll tear you down with my words.

Am I doing enough?
Am I hurting you enough?

I know you'll stay with me.
I know that it hurts you too.

You need me.
I'm all you have.

I'll always be honest to you.
With my little white lies.

The author's comments:
They may tell you they love you, but if it's more pain than pleasure, it's not worth it. Written from the point of view of someone who I thought loved me.

"I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities."
--Dr. Seuss

I'm speechless.  This is...amazing.  I love it!!!!!
