I have two addresses

10.14.8.55 and 10.14.8.56

As I understand it, there is no way to use masks to separate these 2 addresses into 2 different subnets

Is this correct ?

Well, that's both kind of correct and incorrect.. You can get close with a netmask of /30 (255.255.255.252).

10.14.8.52/255.255.255.252 has addresses 10.14.8.52 (network), .53 and .54 (hosts) and .55 (broadcast)

10.14.8.56/255.255.255.252 has addresses 10.14.8.56 (network), .57 and .58 (hosts) and .59 (broadcast)

So you can well separate those addresses into two subnets, but not use them as host addresses.
