I love you.
Despite your shortcomings, I love you.
Sure, there are many things I don't like about you.
Some I even despise.
You are capable of the most heinous acts.
You can inflict pain with terrifying ease on other parts of the world.
You can be so self-centred that you become blind to the hurt you cause yourself.
Yet, you are also capable of the most extraordinary act of selfless love.
Sometimes, I feel like you forget how beautiful you can be.
But that is not the reason why I love you.
I love you because I can't help but love you.
I love you because you are me. And I am you.
