Just Friends

Don't deny it, everyone has one, and you still think about them. You can't quite put your finger on it no matter how hard you might try. It's that certain guy or gal you keep in the back of your mind. You know that one person you can never remember any bad memories about? (Or just choose not to and instead see nothing but the best in them.) Yeah you know the one who always seemed to be there when you needed them the most. Always around just to chat or joke around. When you had to tell someone something important so it wouldn't consume you, he or she listened. They never expressed any judgment other than a few thoughtful words and insight.

She's the one you talk to about not being able to get a single good date. He's the one you rant to about your relationship problems with Mr. Prefect. They understand you on a certain level "most people" don't. It was unspoken and agreed upon that you two are just friends. Nothing more and certainly nothing less. The fact is she's already taken; he's another girl's man. She doesn't think of you that way; he doesn't want to complicate your relationship. The risk isn't worth it. And so, like many things people let it slip away. You do your thing and they live their own life.

As a result the inevitable happens. Some course of life (graduation, relocation, etc) happens and contact with that person breaks down. This is not by choice, but it is by fate. Perhaps that's why we find ourselves daydreaming about these pivotal people in our lives. It's because they shape us the most even though it's goes unnoticed. Thus we reflect on a different time separating ourselves from current troubles. Memories of lessons on phone conversations. Explaining the concept of actual flirting. Debating why you two aren't together.
