My love is more important than your love. When I look at you and feel my love for you, my chest swells and I feel warm inside. I smile to myself. I feel good. I feel almost dizzy. I am with you because I love you, not because you love me. Your love is not required for me to love you to your bones. Your love is not required to make me want to care and look after you forever. It is awesome that you love me, and that just makes me love you more, but it is a side effect. My love really is more important – to me at least.
When I said I will love you forever that was true. You take your love away but it is my love that is more important. My love remains. My love for you stays with me – your love was never required for that. I feel cold. My stomach knots and I feel sick, but my love is still there. It hurts me now that I can’t show you my love directly. My love for you only exists within me now.
I will add your heart to the other hearts that I have loved along the way. My heart locker has room for more hearts. Maybe yours will be the last one I ever have to put inside. If not then I will continue to love and be hurt and to feel alive, for my love really is more important.
