The Great “IF” / Memorable Fancies #1435

[“Why am I not frightened? Why am I thinking about you?” – Lucy Corin]

I should be fearful, thinking about what you – not quite did, but almost – or said you might – and started to do… but then I was saved by the IF you uttered, the great IF that gave me lease, so that IF I ever did the IF-thing, then what you would do to me would be my doing: my decision, my power; not yours.

It is some consolation.  It helps me sleep, sometimes.
