She gave me her love
In exchange for my power
Although we kept on
Intimacy was dead within the hour.
I will love you if…I will love you when…is heartache in the making. If you must bargain with your partner for love, what you receive will not be love. It may look like it and even feel like it for a time, but love has nothing to do with control. Intimacy will die quickly and love will not live when it has been bargained for.
