overwhelming presence

One grows distant from another

not because of hatred,

not because of indifference,

but sometimes,

because of fear.

There's the fear that the hurt gets greater

as one gets closer...

a recognition of the tendency to fall deeply,

and consequently drown

in a quicksand of stupid irrationalities.

At times,

what drives one away

is not the absence of emotion,

but the

overwhelming presence of it. :(
