"For my next trick, I am going to make it about me." Being with him is like being in a magic show, there's always a sleight of hand, a split second after which I believe he loves me, then I'm falling into a water tank and I'm in chains. He manages to get me out of there, "I saved you." He faces the audience, bows, "Me. I did that." I am standing beside him. Wet and relieved, but on edge. A put-on smile. What comes next? "I will slice you in half." I believe he will make me whole.
