I am quite intense, my dear,
it’s easy to be afraid. let me
walk you through the parameters, let
me introduce you to the fear. here is a
safe room where you can take
refuge; it’s quite legal,
I have provided it for you.
look, there is an escape door out
the back. you will enter the
street from there so make sure
it’s what you want.
you won’t be invited back,
I don’t take rejection well. you will have
to step out into the world with
a smile on your face because that
is what the world expects and we
like to provide what the
world wants, don’t we? we don’t
like to stand out, that is why my space is
far removed, protected.
here is the switch you can turn
if it gets to be too much, if you
want to slow it down. it will
alert me, it will send
sedatives pulsing through my veins.
it will give you time to think, you
can reconsider. no other
relationship offers a panic
switch; it is unique with me.
one of the perks, one of the
reasons you can feel safe.
I will take your heart, your
soul, and check them behind the
desk. don’t worry I’ll keep them
safe. I will take your hesitation,
your doubt, and pack them away. only you
can decide if you want them back.
only you can decide how far
