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.

  1. Ahh this is so beautiful and so true. I can second your thoughts that relationships are not a walk in the park. It requires a lot of love, commitment, understanding, tolerance, seeing the beautiful sides of the person and so much more. You said it well 🙂 Good luck to you guys. With the right attitude and heart, you will make it 🙂
