He was the instigator
and I was the witness
we were incapable
of moving forward
I requested indifference
he surmised a process
the schedule of willingness
to advance
I was reminded to agree
Yet secretly I ignored protocol
He enforced the structure,
inwardly I denied him the facts,
the facts of who I was
and what I aimed to do
I don’t care to cause harm
I had no desire for such destruction
not this way
Everything until this point
had been my choice
but now…
I couldn’t do it
and I said no
He respected that
yet I no longer had any interest
in the situation
so I chose to move forward
