A Story of love and friendship.

They were the best of friends but now it's as if they never crossed each other's path

They've been friends for quite a long time. The girl would always sing songs to the guy while in return the guy would compose dozens of poems. Every single word is infused with unfathomable passion and as every ink spills, so does yearning and love. Hers is the sweet voice that awakens the boy from deep slumber and the one, a soothing lullaby that cradles him to bed. There is no storm to intense for them to endure, no mountain too high for them to reach and no problem too big for them to overcome.
Their hands were held and their fingers locked as they walked through life. They became the light to each other's path, the strength for every weakness and the smile for every tear. Their love was far more sweeter than the sweetest honey, higher than the limitless heavens and deeper than the deepest ocean. The finest words could never portray the strong friendship that encloses them.

One day the boy asked: "would there be a chance that you fall in love with me?" "of course" the girl replied. The sweet exchange of words continued as new chapters of their lives began unfolding. It was the time to flip the coin and take a glimpse on the other side. A once pleasant friendship became a passionate romance. They were so engrossed into each other, engulfed by the warmth of the love they shared. They were immersed in the depths of each other's heart, so in love that they could write books about their love. As their eyes meet, seconds turned hours and as his lips press against the girl's the universe paused to witness such immeasurable love.

They broke up. Knife-life words spitting out from the boy's mouth piercing and wrecking the girl's heart apart. She was emotionally battered. In fact, both of them were for none of them thought this would have happened. None of them desired to put an end to their grandiose story. The sun hid behind the shadows of the clouds as lightning flashed across the sky. A few moments have passed and the heavens began pouring out its tears. The bright picture was filled with shades of agony. They embraced for the very last time whispering cold and unbearable words of goodbye

A couple of sunsets have passed yet the boy's heart remained wounded. He found himself trapped in a cage of regrets. His heart grew weak every passing moment longing for the girl's caress. He lost more than just a lover but a best friend. The roots that were once deep were easily plucked out. For two years the boy cried over his bestfriend. Tears kept rolling down his cheeks as he stab himself with letters the girl once wrote for him. The poems that were once overflowing with inexpressive joy, poems that were filled with a vast array of colors are now dull and dead. He had to endure 2 years of unending torment.

One day the boy asked if they could once again journey together, steal blissful glimpses from the past and head towards the future together lovers or best friends it doesn't matter as long as they're together the boy would be glad. "Can't we just forget what happened and write a new chapter in our lives? Can't we just hold on to the happy memories and use it to reignite the fire in our hearts? Can't we have one last chance? Can't we?" The boy clutched the girl's arms as he cried these words. The girl turned away and said: "What happened in the past stays in the past, to be honest I don't have any feelings for you anymore." The boy shook the girl's arms and uttered: "Look me in the eyes and say you don't love me! you're my best friend, you're the one person who knows me, who knows how I feel even without saying a word, the one who can look deep into my eyes and tell me how I am doing." The girl did what the boy asked. The boy was stunned. He stood there watching helplessly as the girl walked away from him.

Their book ended with that sorrowful conversation.
THE END.

They say that you don't know what you have until you lose it but I think it doesn't work that way. For me, you do know what you have, it's just that you thought you'd never lose it.

grabee... kaya dapat talaga ang best friend-ship hindi dinadala sa higher level e...it may work in some cases, pero almost always it doesn't. kasi nag-iiba totally yung relationship e.

well, pwede if they'll stay together forever. pero if not, sayang ang best friend-ship.

galing mo dude :)

i can't find the right words to say to you..

love. love. it doesn't only build up a good relationship, it also destroys an existing GREAT relationship. i just hope that the next time the boy and the girl meet, everything has fallen back to its places.

may both of them be happy. :)

grabe..nalunod ako sa post na 'to..haaay..ganda ng mga word na ginamit mo,saludo ako sayo..*salutes* anyways,there is really a very little chance that a bestfriend-ship would work if taken into a higher level,naiiba na kasi talaga yung setup..at kadalasan napakahirap magadjust,kaya this so called bestfriends turned lovers relationship always ends up in a break up not only the romantic relationship but also the friendship..kaya nakakatakot at mahirap magmahal ng kaibigan..lalo na ng bestfriend..buti na lang ako,never ko pa tong naranasan,haha Ü

ELAY said...

Superjaid: di mo pa naeekspiryens? aba aba aba maswerte ka. And yes, I agree may mga cases nga na nagwowork ang ganitong kind ng relationship salamat sa pagbisita n_n

bea trisha said...

yes..you know what you have..
u just ignore it since you know the fact that it's (still) yours...

=(

ELAY said...

BEA TRISHA: haaaay, sooo right. Tapos ang painful thing pa is you have no choice but to keep moving forward... moving on with life without her.
