Long ago shared memories, twisted in the wreckage of absence and abandonment.
A dysfunctional distance breeding detached loyalty and an uncomfortable formality.
Forgiveness freeing the pain of the past, failing to fill the void of time, forever lost to days and years gone by.
Shared bonds of blood, not enough to close the gap left by the ravages of one sided separation.
Similar but still unknown, little common ground, shaky earth beneath our feet as we meet again.
