And I thought it only happened in fiction…Why do two people who once evidently cared for each other, willingly and willfully set out to destroy the other to nothingness, a pale shadow of their former selves? Past the cardboard pretence, so much so that there is nothing left, nothing much that one could call worthy or respected, at most tolerance, a living arrangement? Does familiarity breed contempt, after which ennui sets in, ensuring you whittle away at all that was vital, good and pure once? And fool me, I thought people were meant to grow together, reach for the sunlight, with overlapping and independent areas of interest.


To life, then...


EDITED: This is not about me.

I've seen the deconstruction (and destruction) of self and relationship which you describe. It is a terrible storm. Only thing you can do as a witness is to duck and cover until the parties involved are spent and then (maybe) be there as a friend (if there are any pieces left).
