Knowing when it's time to cut....

How do we know for sure when to cut someone loose ?
We have put up with their nonsense, coddled them, loved them, ignored them, hated them....
And then, after all of those idiosyncratic gestures are spent.....
there exists a sort of "Elephant" in the room...
non sequitur...
2+2= 15 somehow....
And into this state of 'unknowing'....of discomfiture...
comes a moment of STUNNING CLARITY....
an essential epiphany...
and we KNOW, unwavering, what we must do....
We must CUT off the cancerous limb...
as the alleged 'stagnancy' is only THAT.......ALLEGED....
for it will grow and consume....
 in a most dangerous and painful way....
And so...
We do it....
We cut....
And all, suddenly, is as it should be...
The elephant has left the room......
