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

    'I do not see you but love you blindly' - great line, great poem. Love can only be blind. Intense love a blinder.

    Oh the fine line between love and hate. Def Leppard has this line 'when love and hate collides...' and U2; 'I can't live with or without you...' It is such a frustrating feeling, and yet, don't we all wish to have someone that we can feel that way about?
