I have to admit that I do feel your absence and being me, it is but natural. The cause of your absence is known best to you. It is something I have come to terms in a most calm manner, as if it was the most natural thing to do, yes you taught me this would happen.In the past, we bonded because the twin and parallel nature of our personality, it is an oxymoron in itself but then it was just what Fate wanted it to be. You have been there like the lodestar that guided me in some of the darkest days of my life, and harnessed me even in times stormy. You taught me to differentiate between real and genuine from the farce. You accompanied me to the journey of self realization teaching some of the most treasure lessons of life. You never sympathized with me, neither did you offer pity it was just your empathy that I needed and that was all you offered. You told me people are mostly selfish beings who go to any extent to just do their own good. No-one values genuine feelings or emotions, they are just the rings of the ladder that moves up, hence people will just scorn and mock me, so I need to be one of them to beat them at their game. you taught me diplomacy as a part of survival, keep your friends close and enemies closer, this is what our elders say and this is what you told me to practice to survive this struggle for survival; where just one slip and we are trampled by materialistic moron who care two hoots for what we think, feel or stand up for, our personality and individuality is over crushed under the colossal weight of all that is wrong and unethical otherwise.
I have retained my individuality, the very essence that sets me apart from others but I have learned the ropes to survival that you had once taught me, and it is this knowledge I treasure, none but you could have taught this valuable lesson and ensure that it was indeed well learnt.You meant so much to me, and in your time of need, when I saw you wince with obvious discomfort I wanted to be there, but you brushed me aside saying nothing was the matter, I let you be, because you had taught me to do so. I suffered seeing you suffer. Then came the realization, it was not the solitude that you seek, maybe you do, but this was just a ploy to distance yourself from everyone, even me, like everyone else, your need was met and it was time to move on. I saw you turn over a new leaf and any trace of commonness or the relationship we share was wiped clean, I was left no option but accept the void you left behind and I did a commendable job. I took it on the face, with surgeon like calmness, brave heart like courage, not a tear did leak, not a cry of agony; because I had learnt the last lesson of survival: never waste your emotions on someone undeserving, cut your losses and move on, you had said; and that was exactly what I did.
