Friction

Psalm 55:12-13
It is not enemies that taunt me- I could bear that;
It is not adversaries who deal insolently with me-
I could hide from them.
But it is you, my equal,
my companion, my familar friend,
with who I kept pleasant company

--------
we talk
tension
apprehension
two magnets, the same pole
two halves, but not whole
we wait
Memories replaced
erased
substituted
diluted

A difficult calculus
what has happened to us

-----

Sadness and madness and anger
are too closely related

The only way out of this is to forgive
and to forgive
and to forgive
and to forgive
and to forgive
and to forgive
and to forgive
