Strangers —> Friends —> Lovers —> Strangers
We started out as strangers. You’re just one of those nameless people I often pass by on the street. You didn’t even bother to look at me and I’m like that to you. Because maybe we’re just following those words from our parents “Don’t talk to strangers.” You didn’t know me and I didn’t know you. There is nothing in between us except for one thing, you’re a human and I’m a human too, that’s our common denominator. We live on the same planet, we on breathe the same air, we walk on the same earth, we both give off carbon dioxide, we both try to survive. Yeah, because of hose things that we can consider as our similarities, you and I are possible.
But fate has it’s own plans. Because of some unknown reasons, those two strangers met and became friends. Our paths have crossed and then friendship blooms. At first there’s this strange feeling, that you don’t trust me and you don’t like me, but in the end, you became convinced that I can be one of your friend. We hangout together, we save each other texts, we talk to each other 24/7, we share each other personal stuff. There are no strange feeling involved now, because we know each that much already. We laugh together, we cry together and we hate other people together.
I have to rephrase it, there is a strange feeling involved, maybe that is the hunger for a more intense feeling, we just can’t be friends, that’s why we take higher steps and let ourselves feel the feeling of being one. We’re lovers now. Isn’t that great? Its the most exciting stage. Its the part wherein everything become a little romantic. The atmosphere was full of sweet music and corny pick-up lines. We become inseparable. We become one. Our hearts unite. Promises of a brighter tomorrow were utter. Cuddling, hugging and kissing become our favorite hobby. Holding each other’s hands become our daily routine. It’s the part wherein we’re high up there and almost reaching the stars, almost.
But things changed. And it’s not for the better, it’s for the worst. Sure there’s our friendship that served as the foundation of our relationship, but we can’t prevent those things that are meant to happen. We didn’t let things fall down, we try to save everything but life has already decided, we aren’t the one for each other. Now we’re back to zero again. Just when I though that we’ll never be strangers again, I was wrong. We’re travelling this road for the second time. We cut off the connection. We avoid each other’s glimpses. We’re strangers with some memories now. The only thing that remain was our broken hearts. Waiting to be healed by time.
