I lost a friendship the other day. It was a new friendship, but it was intense and exciting and joyful and full of promise and possibilities. I'm sorry that it went the way it did and wish I could undo the damage that this friendship and its bitter end caused to everyone involved. I feel that I squandered something precious; I held it in my hand for a short while but it turned to sand and slipped through my fingers. I am weepy, heartsick, sad, and so, so regretful.
