I Do Not Love You Except Because I Love You

I do not love you except because I love you;
I go from loving to not loving you,
From waiting to not waiting for you

    Very passionate and truthful. He knows he loves her, but only because he is in love with her. He knows her faults and they make him hate her, yet he loves her in the end. Very true.

    A strange thing this we call love
    An all encompassing feeling. Wow!
    A roller coaster ride that so begins
    Till you eventually either lose or win....

    Good poem, but a bit taxing on our grey cells

    Dear Poet, you have put us all in confusion..This poem clearly indicates your indepth love. But the love which cannot be accepted, in front of all, whatever may be the reason.But you are trying to ignore it from the fact that you love her a lot and your heart is speaking of it. But to convince self you are talking of extreme ends of hatred.
    The last stanza tells you alone are dying in love, it means either the one you love has died or left you or you never ever spoke of love to her at all. She may be unaware of your love.
    I might have read many comments on it, to catch the meaning of this poem..If you have left us some notes, we could have guessed more easily.
    Fantastic poem..loved reading it...

    I really like this poem, I can feel it's depth...star crossed lovers whose love just cannot be....one is married, the other single....

    One of my all time favourite poems. Why should I love somebody who does not care for me? ? what is the point in wasting oneself away in unrequited love. Love feeds on love, indeed.
