Having someone distance themselves away from you is one of the worse feelings in the world. One day you are talking and laughing, and the next day you do not even look at each other in the eye. How do you wake up one morning and decide that you no longer want to have anything to do with that person anymore?
Distance by miles suck, but distance of the souls hurt. It aches, it really does. It’s like the person is there, but not really with you emotionally or mentally. They are next to you but they do not want to be there. They hear you but they do not listen. They look at you, but they do not look into your eyes. They are practically gone.
What’s worse is not knowing why they are moving further and further away from you, they just are. They are just backing away while you are trying to pull the ropes to hold them closer but they are trying so hard to snip it. And then you find yourself running to catch them, you are out of breath trying to close this space between but the more you chase, the bigger the gap becomes. Till one day, the distance is just far too great to cross.
That’s when you know you have to stop pacing. You have to stop trying to glue the cracks that will not be mended. They have already gone away too far.
