ive always meant to say something witty about this!
i like that Tinie points that out.. it makes it sound exotic and taboo.. i suppose the best way to address how this phrase makes me feel is to direct it to the guy i would most likely break tradition for
let me start off with my traditions… i may have grown up stubborn, but my mum wielded enough emotional reign on me to train me to be dutiful.. i will wait on you whether you want me to or not… it’s ingrained in me that this is the right thing to do.. it’s what ive been trained for my whole life
call me cocky that i think it’s safe to assume you will love my traditions
but yes i will deviate from that for you as well.. not because you push me to be strong, thinking you are saving me from the confines of domesticity… no, boy, i am strong even without you… i am strong even as i cater to you… i submit because i am strong
ill give you love that is sweet… not temperate and lifeless like what ive seen from the marriages of old people… not sappy, theatrical or rehearsed… no one buys that bullshit and the couple displaying that are probably over compensating from lack of real joy in their relationship… ill love you in traditions and rituals.. ill love you beyond them… ill love you like no poet could write about and no other heart can comprehend
my love is not passive you will find
