I told you that I broke the one before hims' heart-
on purpose! There was no need,
but the fun was too enticing.
I told him I couldn't promise I wouldn't do the same,
so he'd better just go before he got hurt.
I told him cruelty was my specialty;
a defense mechanism for my own fears.
'Hurt them before they hurt you, the world is a sick, bad place.'

He laughed and kissed me.
