Creative Nonfiction Friendship Romance

You mean a lot to me. We were young but I still felt like we were gonna be something. That we were gonna grow together and be together. That was me before. Me when I didn’t go through what I had been through. When you cheated; which people could’ve said was minor, but yet again a first time kiss that was stolen from me isn’t minor because you were suppose to be mine; I cried and was sad. 

When I heard Drivers License I sorta wish It was made at the time of the break up. I sorta felt her pain too. Maybe that’s when I started playing with people’s hearts but maybe that’s just what I wanna think because after that my heart was tossed around and played with. Then I dated and he felt like my rebel piece that I needed to let go. Then we let each other go and that was also sad. (Like Billie said “I’m the bad guy”. I sorta wanna believe that but we both know I’m the nice one between us.)

I wanted you. Maybe not in the middle of all the reck but I did and I was happy when we chatted here and there. You were my lost piece and like I said till this day your my soul mate, I love you, and we’re the same person. I watch videos of couples and bestfriend goals and I just picture us together being bestfriends and having that connection. We both know that with all the feelings, hurt, love, and other things we’ve been stronger and we’re HERE now… TOGETHER. I’ll be with you till the end… if God’s path is of that image. I want us to go and present ourselves to God, the church, and our family so everyone can see that we are serious and the years spent talking was ALL worth it. 

I’ll always pick you up and you know that. But here’s my little secret: with all our unspoken rules the number one rule, for me, is to love you and cherish you but never let our love or lust be greater than what our purpose shall be… to be each other’s.
