Letting You Go

I haven't seen her in a while

her hair tied back in a ponytail

her cheeks sunken

black circles around her eyes from lack of sleep.

But that's part of every new mothers look.

I don't think she noticed me staring at her.

As soon as our eyes met i smiled, and we kissed and said our hellos like we saw each other last week. Instead of nine moths ago.

There we were in a near strangers house, acting like strangers ourselves.

Like we weren't nearly sisters. our past and history so entwined i dont have a memory that is just my own. She seems to be in every single on of them.

How did we get to this point?

i know exactly how. Down to the precise second that turned our relationship around.

there we were sitting next to each other yet worlds apart.

A big fat elephant between us.

neither of us wanting to acknowledge it.

Both of us wishing we could kill it.

But we won't.

We cant.

The damage is already too great.

So were going to smile at each other in public, and exchange pleasantries at gatherings.

But we would never again be what we once were.

I have let you go.

Sometimes the only thing you can do is to let go. I think when the time comes to let go, whether you want to admit it to yourself or not, you feel it inside you, and usually it is better to listen to that gut feeling rather than try to resist it.

I can see that this is hurting you. But never say never. You never know what the future hides and you might be back together like old days or even better. ;)

you ain't only one out there, if you understand what am I saying.

It's really sad when friends grow apart. It happened to me too and the whole thing was very hurtful and disappointing. But you know what? So long as you can be pleasant to each other when you see each other in public there's still a small window open for fences to mend. Sometimes time needs to pass and you find yourself feeling different about the friend, a little less upset, a little more accepting.

Seems very tough situation and its hard when you have to let go!

Bone-chilling, Eshda3wa. Very expressive. I always choose to cut them out of my life completely instead of talking to them over the huge wall between us. I don't like to downgrade any kind of relationship/friendship. If i had to, i'd demolish it. Very nonsensical.

Maybe just for now, Eshda3wa . . . maybe just now when your lives have taken you - maybe temporarily - in different directions.

All those memories are a powerful foundation for a long long term friendship. I have a friend who calls me her "battle buddy': we've been apart for a long time, but when I'm in big trouble, she's who I call. Sometimes she knows I'm in trouble before I do.

Don't think that it's over forever. Friendships forged over a long time have serious strength.
