If I had a dollar for every time that you’ve hurt me, a dollar for every time I let it happen, a dollar for every time I had faith that you wouldn’t do it again, a dollar for every time you promised you wouldn’t, a dollar for every time I said “I love you”, a dollar for every time I thought about you, a dollar for every time you said you’d change, a dollar for every way I changed for you. If I had a dollar for every time I’d buy a time machine and erase the day we met, the day you first hurt me, the day I fell in love despite that, the day I took you back and I’d erase today because today hurt the most. But I can’t so I know that when you apologize for this time I’ll take you back once again and sadly I know you’ll hurt me again. I know the truth but I can’t help myself because I love you. I love you more than anything in the world, I love everything about you. The sight of you, your smell, your laugh, how you hold me, how you kiss me, how you walked through the snow for me, how you make me laugh, your presence, how I feel when I am near you, how I can never stop thinking about you, and how all I want to do is protect you from the world including yourself. I love you more than you know and wish you would see that, see that you don’t need to push me away because I am that one person who won’t hurt you. I am not like everyone in your past and it hurts inside to know that you think I am. I want you to know that I am willing to forget all the times I’ve been hurt and move on. I am happiest when I am with you and I hope you are too.
