The fallacy of the Ego

I boost your ego
You let me go
And I'm the ultimate victim.
"This is it for me. This is me move on."
I'm just quoting you verbatim
Like you are possessed by a demon.

A tacit admission of guilt
Against my best wishes
I was sabotaging us
You turn yourself into a fictional character
in a novel not yet written
Shed some light
on your dark side
come back
And tell me what you see.
