Hear me read it

I have never loved you.
I did not love you since the day we met,
I did not love you the moment
I looked into your beautiful eyes.

I have never loved your soft voice
As it whispers my name in adoration
And I have never loved the look in your eyes
When you look at me.

I don't love your hair,
Or the way you look in the morning,
Half asleep and vulnerable and shy.
I do not love you.

I did not love you at the first touch,
At the first kiss.
I did not love you the first time,
Or the second time,
Or the last time;
Not even then.

Listen to me carefully -
I have never loved you.
I will never love you.
I will not love you until my very last breath
And beyond.

I will not love you for all that you are,
Nor accept you for all of your innocent flaws.

I cannot love you.

I have never loved you
Since the first time I set my eyes on you.

Thanks, it always has gotten mixed reviews so I've been thinking the past 2 days I might rewrite the concept, see if I can try and make 100% of the readers get what I'm trying to do

Honestly so many people have no idea what real love is... hence I get a lot of awkward questions when I write love stories since people usually can't handle the magnitude of the scale of the emotion itself. Love is effing huge.

On a side note, and more to the point... the dude in this poem needs to get a dollar and buy a clue. Cuz he's clueless in Seattle. XD
