Listen carefully to me, darling, because I’m giving you fair warning that I won’t let you do this to us. You gave me your love, and I will not let you take it away. The harder you try, the harder I’ll fight you. I’ll haunt your dreams at night, exactly the way you have haunted mine every night I was away from you. You’ll lie awake in bed at night, wanting me, and you’ll know I’m lying awake wanting you. And when you can’t stand it anymore you’ll come back to me and I’ll be there waiting for you. I’ll cry in your arms, and I’ll tell you I’m sorry for everything I have done and you’ll help me find a way to forgive myself.
