Scribblings by Sarah


Our relationship was simple, and yet complicated.

There were times of smooth sailing and, equally, times of turbulence. We were each other’s counterbalance, filling in the holes of our selves to mask our imperfections. It was a tenuous set of scales though, easily tipped and spilling over into the world around us.

Others were amused by our apparent inability to live with each other, and our absolute refusal to live without each other. We were words without vowels – nonsensical; just a string of consonants, with no meaning behind them.

Oh, how precious to have someone like that, who can challenge us and yet accept us, as we are. What a tragedy not be aware of this, until they are gone.

I wonder where she is now.

And I hope she is well.
