severance

severance

in the story of my life
there are two friendships
that ended
not just grew apart
or divided by circumstance
(i have plenty of those on my record
i suppose everyone does)
no, these are friendships
that came
to an
end
with each party feeling
that the other had acted
in such a way
that the cost of continued relationship
would be much
too high
one thing that christians will say
is that things that have ended
can begin again
though if that were to happen
they would then be different
in ways we cannot know
i don’t know
if i still count
as a christian
but that is a thing
that i also
believe
such things may be
but i couldn’t say
if ever they should
