It’s gotta stop.
After tonight, I’m out of here.
We’re too toxic. I’ve got to get away
from all of this
ugliness we’ve made.
It can’t continue like this.
We just can’t.

Maybe with a little time
a little space
a bit of breathing room between us
it won’t be so awful
and things can get better
and I won’t be half as much a dick.

The farther I am from you,
the less likely I am to hurt you.
That’s got to be worth the effort, right?
It can’t go one like this?
I’ve been far too terrible.
Something’s gotta give out.
Let it be me.
