True love?

True love?

If you get hurt, heartbroken, you cut, you almost died the night before, and you can still forgive her for her mistakes, if you can give her your heart back so she can stitch it shut, so she can heal you after she shattered your hopes. After she toyed with your feelings not purposely but consciously , she ignored you claiming she was shielding you from being upset, but only made it worse. You can hold back the tears and clean up your wounds, and still look at her like she's the only one in the world, still telling her she has no faults, admiring her, adoring her like you always have. And she feels terrible, for bringing so much trouble into your life. For being the cause of your pain while she should have been your shelter from all sorrow, feeling so undeserving from anyone's love, because she never truly knew love. Someone who only knew pain for so long. Not used to having someone so unconditional as you. Never appreciating what she had, because everyone would walk away from her anyways. She feels like a burden and a nuisance. But you're different, you stuck by her side, you're holding her hand tightly in yours, and you kept her heart without even scratching it, how can you love her so unconditionally? What do you see in her after all the pain she brought to you, after the words she didn't say...
How can you have eyes for her still? How can you see her like the only girl in the world?
How can you still want a life with her?
How can you want her more than you ever had?
How come you haven't thrown everything away?
How come you didn't walk away from her?
How come you didn't abandon her like everyone else?...
You're not like everyone else...

Is that true love?...
