Selfish selflessness

Hello my girlfriend
Your name seems to avoid me,
It’s not important anyway.
I just want to be the air,
The air that fills your lungs.
Not only but the blood,
The blood that cradles your heart.
Maybe then I will sleep at night.
So is this what you call selfish,
Walking the fine line of selflessness.
Your happiness is neither here nor there,
It’s just the byproduct of this smile on my face.
In all honesty…
According to my philosophy,
Your happiness means nothing to me.
I just want to feel the warmth of words.
I just want to know that you love me,
Without ever knowing what that means.
