"I Love You..."

1) I love you...
2) But only with my fists.
3) I'll always be there to comfort you...
4) But only with hateful words.
5) I will pick you up when you fall...
6) But only to strike you down again.
7) I will help you succeed...
8) But only to stay down.
9) I will tell you, you are beautiful...
10) But only with broken bones.
11) I will compliment your body...
12) But on when you are bleeding.
13) I will show you the world...
14) But only when you are dead!
15) I will cry for you...
16) But only when you are strong.
17) I will live to chase you...
18) But only if you call the cops.
19) I will kiss away your pain...
20) But only to fuck with your mind.
21) I will forever cherish you...
22) But only as a punching bag.
23) I will always love you...
24) But only with my fists.

**P.S. now go back, but only read every odd numbered line...and you'll see what love SHOULD be.**
