The greatest of distances separated us, but being abrasive at best, our two rougher edges always sparked. Even when friendly, a side conversing of judgement and not-quite-resentment kept the parameters of conversation shallow and narrow minded.
Deeper inference caused interference like static in my mind, and short circuits were common even in the most civil of discussions common to other circles.
Round and round, wishes to connect and a secret bid for volatile collision kept us chasing, while a wary voice forced us to stay separated like magnets pushing and pulling.
Never did two people hate so many common things and yet repulse each other so completely.
