I should have kept you in a screen like they keep animals in a cage. Lions are much nicer when they’re tucked away in zoos. And you are much nicer when you have nothing to lose. But distance makes the heart grow fonder, and mine kept growing until it couldn’t no longer. My feelings are real, but to you they’re just fodder to keep you going until you get stronger. I’m not a stepping stone. I’m just lost and alone. And you are, too, but I’m just a distraction until you get out of the zoo. You’re much better to scroll through than to see face-to-face. A lion swaying his mane, looking to escape this place.
