It was more than untenable, slightly more, it was elevenable, how she treated him, not quite acceptable, nearly unacceptable, but he stuck with her, skin thickened, hope clinging she would change, she could change, she’d want to so she could keep him, if she wanted to, but did she really want him or did she want to break up but was afraid to, so she failed the relationship?…he couldn’t know, maybe didn’t want to, closed his eyes and pretended it could still work even though it didn’t work now and hadn’t worked in quite some time, but then he caught her with him and the excuses didn’t work anymore, yet secretly she didn’t love the new him but used the new him to drive the old him off, but it didn’t quite work because the old him wouldn’t go, kept trying, hoping even though it was elevenable.
