Their life span can stretch over years. Why, then, is their capacity for friendship so brief?

It is because no two names are ever the same.

So when you call them, they may not answer. They may, instead, run away in circles. They may cry until they collapse from sheer exhaustion. They may laugh themselves sick or do away with themselves; all this is because they've misunderstood you. You have called out their name and they hear their fears.
