You know what betrayal feels like. Yet, you don’t mind helping him betray me.
That’s why I come for you. He will never understand what it feels like to receive him or any other him. The risk of letting him in; the exposure; the reception; the seed and potential harvest.
But you, you know. You know the pain I will feel. Yet, you try to steal him from me only to cry the same tears and suffer the same grief, when the next one helps him betray you.
This, this is why I come for you.
You are not innocent, although you’ve made no commitment to me.
You piss on my vows, with hopes that they will become your own.
There is no honor for a thief.
