It’s not a breaking of a bond, but more a loosening.
You see it, at first. The distance that has grown between you. Not from hatred, or any passionate emotion if you where honest. Just a quiet boredom that has gnawed away at you for years upon years.
You know it will not last. You might wish it, you might want it, but the gaping hole between you both is too great to overcome.
So you disappear into the night, and let him slide into your past.
