I use sex as a weapon.
What is a weapon?
Something created
to create damage.
To commence artfully,

and leave only destruction.
Why so vengeful?
I am trying to protect myself.
By inflicting pain on others?
I get there first. I am not proud of it.

This does not excuse you.
I know.
You must stop.
Excuse me?
You must stop using sex as a weapon.

And so I will.
