I hate your attitude
that always wants to argue.
I hate your words
that you didn’t think through.
I hate it when you gaze
to women with body’s your amaze.
I hate it when you say sorry
for mistakes you’ve done repeatedly.
But most of all, I hate myself,
because I still love you.
I love how you waited for me
since we’re eight, maybe?
You know I don’t like you,
but still you pursue.
Years have passed,
each of our relationships didn’t last.
And for some unknown reasons,
now, we’ve been together for seasons.
I love how you stare at me,
as if I behold such stunning beauty.
I love how you say I’m sexy,
though I am really chubby.
I love how you understand,
when my bitch-self get out of hand.
I love how you show love,
and I love how you love.
Please know, I am grateful.
More than grateful, I guess.
For five years, of love and mess.
For more years, God will bless.

DAY 1 of 50 Days of Gratefulness
Today, I am grateful for Joseph, my boyfriend for exactly five years now.
Our relationship is far from being perfect. But like what I’ve said in my story ‘Forever’s Ending’, relationships like marriage are choices that you made everyday.
We choose to be together, despite our quarrels and differences.
I am choosing to love him, though I’m having a hard time of forgiving his shortcomings, because I see him as the man I would want to marry someday.
And as long as I look forward to growing old with him, I’ll stay.
