Rescission — to change your mind about giving, usually money. As in, he promised me $4,000 and then issued a (silent) rescission. I never saw the money; so, with his rescission, the only “take back” involved was the promise.

Is this an appropriate analogy for how this might end? You (silently) change your mind, take back a promise? But I touched you, so in that sense, you’d be taking back more than a promise. You’d be taking back warmth and hope. When I consider it and consequently cannot breath, my only recourse is to rip “rescission” from the dictionary, from existence.
