Desperate (tritina)

I wish I knew how, had ability to turn away from you and not look back to see if it affected you, my turning away, walking off. I want you to miss this, and I fail to pass off the distance as a gravely unfortunate turn of events, see truth within desperation, it blinds, consumes, and (I hate to, but) I admit it impossible to justify the breaking off of any contact to once again inward turn. I want to reach within, find this, and turn it off.
