The One Next Door

to strive to be on good terms with all people. thus written in Desiderata. but it is hard sometimes when in a history of relationships, one realizes the need to be wary of getting duped into submitting to a friendship with another.  i look at her and wonder, how good a friend could she be when she did this and that to one good friend of mine. and i look at myself, at what point would i allow both our selves to converge on agreeing to a genuine friendship and until when would be endure setting these invisible fences in light of broken expectations?
