I am truly in love

I hated you everytime I saw you

Snarling and Frowning at me

I despised your words

Your every inflection

You were like a painful disease

I wanted to kill you

To hurt you

To smother you

to get you out of my life

I needed to cut you

to burn you

to slash you

But you hid so deep inside

I needed to heal you

To speak with you

To forgive you

But it took so long to do

I began to understand you

to get you

to need you

to recognize the me in you

So I began to dress you

To educate you

To respect you

and you became so easy to read

And now that I know you

I protect you

I love you

I am proud that the you is now me.
