i do not love you except because i love you

the exquisite view of a california sunset at the ritz carlton dana point. moments like these are little reminders how lucky we are to be where we are.

details. complex geometries top. mongolian lamb fur vest. location. balcony overlooking the ocean at the ritz carlton laguna niguel.

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
My heart moves from cold to fire.

I love you only because it's you the one I love;
I hate you deeply, and hating you
Bend to you, and the measure of my changing love for you
Is that I do not see you but love you blindly.

Maybe January light will consume
My heart with its cruel
Ray, stealing my key to true calm.

In this part of the story I am the one who
Dies, the only one, and I will die of love because I love you,
Because I love you, Love, in fire and blood.
