A Paradox of Romantic Love

I hate you, and I love you.

I despise you, and I long for you.

You make me angry, and you bring me peace.

You are my worst enemy, and my best friend.

You drive me crazy, and you restore my sanity.

I want you to leave, and I want to pull you near.

You are a constant source of irritation, and you are a constant source of calm.

You are a well of confusion, and a well of understanding.

You are my greatest opponent, and you are my greatest champion.

Your words lash out at me, and your words soothe me.

You confuse me, and you intrique me.

You hate me, and you love me.

You are a paradox to me, and you are the only one for me.
