A Tie You Can't Break

Today I saw my ex-boyfriend that I hadn't seen in months. I thought it would be strange to see him, let alone talk to him. But much to my surprise it was not. It made me realize that friendship is a tie that I cant break. I mean the romantic relationship can fizzle out if you don't work on it, but I have never been able to disregard a friendship no matter how hard I try. It is like when your pet bites you really hard, but you still love them anyway. No, I dont think that my ex and I will be the best of pals...cause I know I wont be able to be happy for him when he meets someone else, but I cant pretend the closeness is totally gone. Friendship gets dusty, or it is like riding a bike. I can brush it off or get back on and it is the same again...metaphorically speaking. That is when feel the closest with people in my life. I know those ties are still there, even if they are covered with dust. It also makes me content to know that life is about Life and the relationships with people that we have in it. Life shouldn't be about what happens after...
