‘Til Death Do Us Part


Because I love you
-Every little thing about you
Your smile, your eyes, your walk, your funny little mannerisms
The way you laugh so openly and so generously
The way you can be so laid back one second and so full of enthusiasm the next

Because I love you
And only ever want to be with you
And think all day long of little things I could do for you
And can’t imagine life without you

It’s only
Because I love you
That I wait for hours outside your gym on the chance that I’ll catch a glimpse of you
Sneak round to the back of your house and go through your garbage
Make unnecessary trips to your doctor, your dentist, your therapist and your chiropracter with the hope that I’ll run into you
Have memorized every personal fact about you that I could get my hands on (I bet you didn’t know how much was available to those with determination)
Follow you into restaurants and, when you leave, snatch up your used napkin and, if I’m really lucky, snag a bite of sandwich, a straw or a half eaten roll

Because I love you
I would gladly go to jail for you
Cut off my pinky, wrap it up in pretty paper and a bow and mail it to you
Because I love you
I would kill someone in your name

Because I love you
I stalk you

I stalk you
Because I love you
So much
