Come over here and finish what you started ~ 

"Memento Mori" the words you barely uttered, as the ice finally begins to melt.

How can I get away from you when this damn red thread is constricting my every movement. 

You hold onto the other end mockingly. When did this bond become a leash.

You got past my defences, the ones that took years to build.

A real 21st century assassin. Your laugh antagonizes me further.

Your hands grasp the base of my neck. Your breath in my ear.

You're everywhere, yet you don't give anything of yourself.

Your touch is too clinical. Come over here and finish what you've started.

So detached. Do you even understand the concept of Love?

Your eyes are too empty, as they watch me meticulously.

I should just stop trying to piece myself together. 

Since you enjoy teasing the fragments so. 

As long as you're happy, that's all that matters, right?

I've given in again, as you hiss those three words I needed to hear.

Looks like you've won this round as well. Checkmate!
