One last sane moment
This is goodbye.
No, it is not what you think. I rather like you, and that's why. I am afraid I will fall in love with you. You won't like that.
There is resonance and there is so much similarity it is scary. I can see myself falling in love with you.
My love is a grasping clinging all-pervasive thing. I'd get insecure if you so much as looked at another. My love and my world will be so full of you that there'd be no room for others, but I know you can't love me in the same way. You will talk to others, you will have a life beyond me, somebody will mention your name and I will get insanely jealous.
And neither of us wants that.
I will love you to the extent that my own self is subsumed in my love for you. That can be rather exhausting and you will chafe.
So I am stopping before I can get to those stages of devotion, longing and madness. I am quitting before you feel claustrophobic and shackled, before you will resent me and my helpless adoration. Because I am scared.
Escape while you can.
