He was overly-analytical
He took apart every piece of their conversations
A skilled mechanic
Twisting each word this way and that
Tasting cool surfaces for deception

He was a slave to the words
The hidden meanings
Pressed on by the whip of false hope and passionate desire
Working tirelessly until
Finally
He was finished

And she was gone
