My dear, we are no longer friends. Because you, tick, are puny, blood sucking, selfish, and inconsiderate. Tick, you attach too easily. Your intimacy is shallow. Intrusive. One-sided. Persistent and demanding. Ick, tick. Ours was for me not a love affair of the desirable kind. Solace now, my former friend. Someone else will do worse to you than you did to me. But thanks for the memories.
