He said he loved me everyday until I decided I meant it enough to say it back; hoping it was sufficiently memorable so that he wouldn't need many replays.

He began to age before my eyes; nagging me between "I love you" moments until the words quickly meant nothing. For someone forbidden to fuck me, any dishonesty was too much to handle.

I frequently welcomed his company because I cared enough to encourage his imperfections without capitalizing. Twelve years my senior and he had yet to learn that to transform a stubborn woman you must actually respect and accept her.
