You stood in front of me. That handsome dazzling smile on your face. A look of pure bliss surrounding you. You looked so happy, content.
It wasn't for me though, I knew right away.
You looked my way, and I saw you go from happiness to disbelief in a matter of seconds. Almost like you didn't want me there. I had thought that I'd surprise you, but I never thought that you'd be returning the favor.
She'd been so excited to meet me,me being your supposed friend. I felt insulted by the use of that term. I knew better than that. It had been less than a month,that the two of you had met. Silently my eyes met yours. Your eyes held a pleading look, almost to say to me, not to reveal anything. Little by little my heart was breaking.
She kept gushing on as to how wonderful you are. How amazing it was to have met you. And I felt likewise. Even though I hadn't ever said it out loud to you. Neither did you. It wasn't ever necessary. Yet that day hearing her say those kind words about you, it felt like my heart was being squeezed inside my chest. Like something was suffocating me from within.
I helplessly looked on. Why did you look at me so? What were you trying to tell me? I couldn't understand, I thought I did before. But now I wasn't too sure.
" It's happened so fast, I can't believe we're in love. "
This broke me out of my daze. Love? How could it be? I snapped my head towards you.
You looked away. I couldn't stop the overwhelming feeling wash over me.
She held your hand and gave it a reassuring squeeze. You held it up and gently kissed it. I couldn't take it anymore. This nightmare like feeling. Like the whole world had stopped. Like I couldn't breathe at all. Gasping for air I stood up. And looked away. Anywhere but you. I squeezed my eyes shut, threatened by the tears that could spill over.
I Opened my eyes.
It was only then I realized, my tears being soaked by the soft fabric beneath my cheek. And I was gasping for air.
It was only a dream!
I felt relieved, glad that it didn't happen. A dream that couldn't possibly be true.
But I knew better, a voice in my head whispered, " You and I could never be." And someday I know, this dream will come true.
