I said to a friend, “Let’s talk.” She replied, “What’s there to talk?”
Another friend posted a somewhat sad status on Facebook. I saw it and left a comment, “We can meet and talk about it sometimes you know.” We haven’t talked to each other for more than a month. She replied, “There’s nothing to talk about.”
We used to be close; we met each other regularly to talk about almost anything. Girl gossip. It was meaningless but fun. Something happened, just a small thing, and now there seems to be a wedge between us. I guess what was lost that day wasn’t only a fragment of trust on my side.
I have this friend with whom I could talk for hours. We shared this love for this couple, you see, and she liked my writing, mediocre as it was sometimes. Then our conversations shortened, became scarce. Now we find it difficult to keep it flowing.
Before them, there were others. We were close, close enough to think that I had found my soul mate. Then, for no obvious reason, we became distanced.
What have gone wrong, I wonder.
