Incongruous

Friendship disconnected

Your words were out of synch with friendship
as though written on an ancient typewriter
missing letters and commas, jamming thoughts into
one another like runaway trains, saying what
shouldn’t, needn’t be said because friendship
isn’t always about blatant truths that are only true
to one in a relationship that’s fraying into
strips of jagged words and poisonous spittle.

Get the Medium app

A button that says 'Download on the App Store', and if clicked it will lead you to the iOS App store
A button that says 'Get it on, Google Play', and if clicked it will lead you to the Google Play store
Dennett

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
