Powerless by the Book – Part V of excerpts

‘As you get older, the open spaces start to close up.’

‘You seem to have slipped through.’

‘I get reckless. I risk more than I should.’

‘Have you left your husband?’

‘No, just lied to him.’

‘Can you lie to someone you love?’

‘It’s kinder than telling the truth.’

‘Are you still close?’

‘As close as two people growing apart can be. You keep the form and the habit of what you have, but gradually you empty it of meaning.’

‘If you feel like that, you should leave.’

‘I still love him.’

‘You can love someone and leave them. Sometimes you should.’

‘Not me.’
