Does the word ‘betrayal’ hurt you?
Oh I’m sorry.
I didn’t realize.
Clearly, your feelings are much more important than anyone else’s.
How about, instead of betrayal,
We call it,
An ‘accidental’ breach of faith?
Is that better?
I mean you led me away from the fire!
And then into the quicksand.
Away from a quick death.
Towards a slow one.
Yes, of course you’re right.
It’s completely my fault.
I guess I didn’t see the thorns until it was too late.
And yes, of course you didn’t do anything wrong.
But then again, you never do.
