I Do Not Love You


I do not love you,
Hence I would not lie to you.
I do love you,
Yet I crave to leave you.

I do not love you
Yet I am happy with you
I do love you
Yet a burden you are to me.

I do not love you
Yet when gone I miss you
And think about you,
Till the night see the day

I do not love you
Yet my bone grow weak without you
I do love you
Yet I am stronger without you

I do not love you
Hence do not leave me
For the thought of death hovers
Aimlessly on wings in my mind

I cannot hate you
My sweetest love
Though I want to leave you
I cannot deceive you

I do not love you
Yet strong bond lies between us
Oh my sweetest love
I do love you

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
