Despite all odds

      I do not want anything from you, for I am learning to look beyond you, to love you anyways. I may never be the best, I may never be the only one to care about you, I may never be the best kisser, the smartest, the best in bed, the richest, I may never be the best of anything but one thing I know is that I will be that person who cared about you.

      it doesn’t matter what I can or cannot do, it doesn’t matter what you can or cannot do, for right now, all I wanna make matter is the idea of loving someone in spite of anything. I don’t have to get involved with you, I don’t have to marry you tomorrow, I don’t even have to see you tomorrow, but one thing I ought to do is love you all the same, that’s how we know we are children of God.

      The rules of engagement doesn’t have to be there cos it makes me expect things from you, things that I am looking beyond, just to care about you. I love you in spite of the rules. I love you in spite of what you may think of me or what I may think of you. its not about emotions and feelings, its not about calls or no calls, its not about much, but its about loving you in spite of all these.

       If I never see you, I will still love you, if I never hear from you again, I will still love you. if you wake up to hate me, I will still love you. I may not agree with you, but I will still love you. if my moments come on and off, I will still love you ‘cos I am trying to love you despite all odds, I am trying to love you in spite of anything and there is no shame in doing any of that.

  17. Wow!!! …simply wow, that we would all learn (oops, LEARN) to love like this in all our relationships. What a wonderful world ‘twould be.

  18. @rethots….lol, thanks hon. The world would be a better place if we all loved aright.All the frictions and wars would be at a minimum, if not at all

  19. You’ve just expatiated on Shakespeare:

    Love is not love
    Which alters when it alteration finds,
    Or Bends with the remover to remove.
    O, no! It is an ever-fixed mark,
    That looks on tempests and is never shaken

  20. @Ochuko….lol, hmmmm Shakespeare? there’s nothing as powerful as an unconditonal love.
