I Don’t Care. {poetry}



I don’t care if you hate me, so long as you don’t hate me all your life.

I don’t care if you run from me, so long as you run with tears of regret in your eyes.

I don’t care if you despise me, so long as you are the last thing I see when I die.

I don’t care if you can’t say you love me, so long as you can’t live without me.

I don’t care if you leave me hanging for your next message, so long as you think so much of the time you don’t.

I don’t care if you think I’m silly, so long as you laugh with me.

I don’t care if you need much space between us, so long as you give me yours so often.

I don’t care if you feel relieved in my absence, so long as you feel breathless in my presence.

I don’t care if you are fascinated by others, so long as you need me fascinated with you.

I don’t care if you can be such a perfectionist, so long as I can make you love your imperfections.

I don’t care if you are controlling, so long as I’m the one you need to put under your thumb.

I don’t care if you find me unbearable, so long as you can bare yourself to me.
