alter |ˈôltər|
change or cause to change in character or composition, typically in a comparatively small but significant way : [ trans. ] Eliot was persuaded to alter the passage | nothing alters the fact that children are our responsibility | [ intrans. ] our outward appearance alters as we get older | [as adj. ] ( altered) an altered state

It all comes together in the most undignified way – like two bodies struggling against each other, biting and crying. You know that it started out with a slow movement, a flirtation, a meeting of the eye. It started with a sensual dance, a safe motion of matter with each piece exactly where it belongs. You know, even then, that it’ll come to this chaotic moment, this small and violent release. You know before you begin that you will be pressed flat on your stomach, struggling for breath, unable to tell where you begin or end.
You anticipate that moment of absolute agony, of unparalleled fear, but your whole being wants nothing, nothing more than to be right where you are. It is the only possible ending to a story for which you alone can be held accountable. It’s a wonderful freedom, a terrifying beginning of a whole new dance.
