    It bloomed bright and beautiful in the summer sun. Infatuation, lust, and the most innocent love. I embraced it, clung to it, rejoiced in it. I gave it to you freely, without reservation. I expected nothing in return, only hoped. And, to my heart's delight, you professed your...

    I'm not certain unhappy is the best descriptor.

    Regardless, the simple fact is that I'm not "in love" with her. I do care about her, and her son. I don't want anything to happen to them, but I don't want to spend the rest of my life with her either.
