Selfish but Sincere

By Stanley Collymore

I love you not only because you’re beautiful,
intelligent, kind and a truly fantastic person
in every conceivable way there is but also
because I’m inherently an utterly
selfish individual especially
where love is concerned and this action of
mine is the apogee of that particular situation;
therefore bearing that in mind I simply wanted you
for myself, significantly well aware, all things
considered, that I’m completely unworthy
of you. Nevertheless, I sincerely hope
that you can both forgive and
overlook this one major
flaw in my otherwise
perfect character?

Footnote:
All’s fair in love and war; and isn’t loving the most intense, personal and emotional form of human warfare there is?
