I want you but I don't need you. If you disappeared from my life I would feel sadness and grief but I would not lay down and perish just because you are gone. I am independent and do not need to rely on you for happiness, financial support, or anything else. It is not possible to experience true love when you are so dependent on someone else that your world would crumble if they left. My feelings for you run deep but it is important for you to understand that I do not need you so much that you become the center of my universe, the most important thing I will ever find in this world. If you betray me or hurt me intentionally I can cut you out of my life and find happiness again, I would not be so crushed by your absence that my life would lose all meaning.
