I Do Not Love You Except Because I Love You

I do not love you except because I love you;
I go from loving to not loving you,
From waiting to not waiting for you
My heart moves from cold to fire.

I love you only because it's you the one I love;
I hate you deeply, and hating you
Bend to you, and the measure of my changing love for you
Is that I do not see you but love you blindly.

Maybe January light will consume
My heart with its cruel
Ray, stealing my key to true calm.

In this part of the story I am the one who
Dies, the only one, and I will die of love because I love you,
Because I love you, Love, in fire and blood.

    I've learned that loving someone doesn't mean you need to give it all. If the love I give didn't return to me, that's the time to move on. The knowledge of the heart should be based on the right conceptual of emotion and feeling. Not wasting but loving to the right someone to love me in return. Good expression. Look for good love.
