'Tis said of love that it sometimes goes, sometimes flies; runs with one, walks gravely with another; turns a third into ice, and sets a fourth in a flame: it wounds one, another it kills: like lightning it begins and ends in the same moment: it makes that fort yield at night which it besieged but in the morning; for there is no force able to resist it.
--Miguel de Cervantes
As Matt has sex with his former lover, he contemplates why he keeps finding himself back in Leo's arms.
Matt is still attached to his former lover through a bond of secrecy and obsession. He wants to break the bonds, Leo works to keep him entrapped.
This is Matt's account of their latest encounter: his longing for strength to resist Leo, his giving over, and the battle within as they play this longstanding game of wills, from initiation to inevitable conclusion. This time he'll break the rules, and stop Leo before he can make a quick exit.
Because Matt isn't so innocent: it's a double play, they're both participants. Will breaking the silence be enough to break the spell?
