Lives diverge. 
Maybe that's a core rule; 
the child leaves the parent, 
or worse, the parent leaves the child. 
Either way there is emptiness somewhat like a death.

Distance is both literal and emotional; voices become cautious 
(She doesn't need to know about that.), opacity arrives.
What were once specifics become generalities. 
And so it goes...
