You tried to change didn’t you? Closed your mouth more. Tried to be softer. Prettier. Less volatile, less awake. But even sleeping you could feel him travelling away from you in his dreams. So what did you want to do? split his head open? You can’t make homes out of human beings. Someone should have already told you that. And if he wants to leave, then let him leave. You are terrifying and strange and beautiful. Something not everyone knows how to love.
