I wanted her to love me only for myself, not because she felt some strange obligation. I wanted her to love me, not from fear, only because she wanted me, my heart and soul. She wanted to love me, for she felt obligated, she feared losing me, my heart and soul. She wanted to love me, not because her heart, had been stolen; she had given it away.

These are the ones you need to cherish, for...
