I felt the stirrings of cruelty in the place of where I extinguished my desire for you so that in our last day together, for your protection or for mine, I could not bring myself to talk to you, not even look at you.

I don’t have to see you for a while and parting without room for mixed messages and confusion was best if this next couple of weeks is to be any kind of purification. In the next few days, I don’t want to hear from you or about you.

It had been fun. Let’s leave it at that.
