Broken Connection

Best friends


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


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
