No, I don’t want to be friends. Cause I don’t want to see you falling for somebody else.

When someone is crying, of course, the noble thing to do is to comfort them. But if someone is trying to hide their tears, it may also be noble to pretend you do not notice them.

- Him: Is there something wrong?
- Her: Nope. I'm fine, really. Why do you ask?
- Him: Because you are not fine. Something's bothering you. You are faking your smiles and trying to hold back tears.
- Her: How did you know that?
- Him: Your smile doesn't seem to reach your eyes. You keep on laughing to a joke that was cracked for the nth time that it is not funny for any of our friends anymore. You are struggling to keep pace because the pain that is bothering you is weighing you down. You don't read romance novels anymore and stick to comedy shows. You wanted to forget about the sadness and pain that you cling on to whatever that makes you laugh, even if it's only temporary, even if it is not really that funny. You grab every opportunity to not be alone because you hate that feeling of being by yourself. You feel hollow and empty inside amidst the smiles and the laughs. It's okay to let all the pain out, you know. Cry. Throw on a tantrum. Break things. Shout. Do anything that would help you get rid of the pain that you are bottling inside. You are not alonebregardless how much you think you are. I am here. Just grab onto me. You will be okay.
- Him: What is your stand on true love?
- Her: I grew up to almost everyone telling me that true love is a once in a lifetime event. That you only get to feel it with that one special person. That if you get to find it, make it work and keep it until the end, you're lucky. But if you didn't, you'll spend the rest of your life pondering about all the what ifs and what-should-bes as you wallow everyday in regret for not having done all that you can to keep it. However, I don't agree with that. For me, true love can exist in every relationship that we commit to, regardless of the ending. As long as you invest real emotions, sincere love and exert efforts to not lose whatever it is that you have, it is true love. I also believe that it is not only meant to be felt with just one person. When we love someone, he/she instantly becomes special. Anyone can make us go crazy and lose ourselves and make us do all the things we haven't tried before as long as we love them. Also, true love doesn't always have to be mutual. One can experience true love with someone who deeply loves another. That one could be very painful, but it's real. I guess people should stop associating true love with the intensity of emotions that one is entitled to feel. You might have gotten over your ex and are feeling head-over-heels in love with your present but that doesn't make what you had with your past lover any less than true. You were once real. You were once overly in love with him/her too. Moreover, people should stop seeing true love as something that is only meant for a few privileged ones. Because every single one of us is entitled to it. Yes, all of us are empowered to feel it -- may it be for a moment or a lifetime.
I keep thinking how much I love talking to you, how good you look when you smile; how much I love your laugh. I day dream about you off and on, replaying our conversations; laughing at funny thing you said or did. I’ve memorized your face and the way you look at me. I catch myself smiling again at what I imagined. I wonder what will happen the next time we’re together and even though neither of us know what the future holds, I know one thing for sure; you’re the best thing that’s ever happened to me.
