For a bit I had these certain emotion towards you and what was funny is we never even met. I didn’t know your name and you didn’t know mine but we sat next to each other. I used to get excited to go there just so I can look at you and maybe, just maybe say hello. Weeks went by, then suddenly out of the blue you sent me a friend request. I sent you a message because talking over the internet is a lot easier than in person. I thought long and hard before sending a reply, then I saw you in person and gave a little smirk and a wave. From that point on we became friends. and we were only friends. After all these years you only saw me as a friend and for a while I believed you were my friend. Friends is what we will stay even though I don’t want to be friends.
