2014: Three Friendships Lost copyright Marika Reinke

Between 2008-2010 I slowly lost three important friendships. One burst open in an angry fight. The other simmered out after a timid attempt at conflict resolution belied by righteousness. The final one slipped into distance and silence. In each instance, I was not ready for the friendship to end but powerless to stop it. Blinded by misunderstood perspectives, three people I had fallen in love with let me go. My heartache and biting pain knew the truth; I did not give them what they needed. Sometimes I cannot give, sometimes I expect others to give, sometimes I need telepathy and other times solitude. I love them and they are beautiful people.
