Broken Connection

Best friends

Separate

Going in opposite directions

To different places

.

At first

Sending letters every day

Then once every month

Slowly drifting apart

.

One goes to university

Earning a master’s degree

Getting happily married

With two children

.

The other

Is a high school dropout

With a collapsed marriage

And is in debt

.

They send letters about their lives

But can no longer connect

Friends

Once so close

Live on different ends of the spectrum

.

They now have different focuses

Different goals

Unlike back then

When they were so close

.

They have grown apart

Living in different cities

Having different jobs

Leading different lives

As the flow of letters

Slows to a trickle

Then stops all together
