just a friend
ph: Karin Mathilda
I hope that I am your reason to smile, even if it means I'd have to act like a complete fool. I wish to be the one by your side when you're sad, the one who cares for you when the whole world seems to be crumble around you. Rough childhood or bad break-ups, I wish to be the one whom you'd create new memories with. I want to be the one next to you when the sunrise comes and the last one to kiss on the forehead before you go to sleep. To watch silly movies and laugh like the world is ours. To walk by the canal in Venice and share a gelato (or two, I know how much you love gelato, so one each ok?). We'd have our crazy adventures and travels around the world.
I can tell how badly broken you were from the past relationships, it's as though you'd never recover from them. "Nahhhh, I'll never fall in love again, I'm too old for that,". Such a cliche that you've told me that "When love strikes, you cannot help it." So why is it that you will not try to open up and accept the love around you? Is it cause you're afraid to be broken again? To stray away from the sidewalks and not take a leap of faith? I'm envious of the girls who've broken your heart, to have you to call it theirs. I wouldn't have broken yours but to cherish it with all that I have.
You were there when I had my heart broken. You told me to move on with someone new. You always seem to have the best advice, as if you know it all. But deep down you're just afraid that I will get hurt like you did.
Not sure how it all started and how it ended up this way, I felt a strange connection to you. Like I've found these missing piece of me. I want you more than just a friend.
All these pent up feelings that I wish you'd know. But I know you will never see me as more than just a friend.
Your friend, C
