I want to take back at least half of the I love you’s, because I didn’t mean them as much as the other ones. I want to take back the secrets I told you so I can decide whether to tell them to you again. I want to take back the piece of me that lies in you, to see if I truly miss it. D.L.
You know that when I hate you,
it is because I love you to a point
of passion that unhinges my soul.
