Recently, my 2 best friends broke up with each other.
They’ve been together for 3 years.
I was their cupid and they were my perfect love team
I said to myself before that if I were to have my own love story,
It will be as real and as sweet as theirs.
I can actually visualize those two growing old in each other’s arms.
2 oldies at UP; holding hands while walking at pasway-sway pa.
It saddened me that my perfect love team turned into estranged bitter persons that they are right now.
How could a love so true turned into a happily never after story?
Does love fades after all then?
How about those Nicholas Sparks story that touched the hearts of millions of people?
Was it all a sham then?
I haven’t heard my guy best friend’s side yet.
I don’t even know if he plans to explain himself either.
What I heard was my gal best friend explaining that her guy found someone else.
The sad part? My guy best friend sought the arms of another girl when he and my gal best friend were still together.
Broken vows that is.
How could he possibly do such a thing and broke my gal best friend’s heart?
I remember him saying “ang pangarap ko lang naman sa buhay ay ung makatagpo ng babaeng magmamahal sakin ng lubos”.
And he actually found it. I’m pretty sure of it. When he and she became an item, I thought, this love is for real.
Their love will surpass all obstacles and they will live happily ever after.
Or so I thought.
3 years turned into ashes.
How it could possibly happened?
My gal bf told me that his guy told her once before the break up, “hindi na kita maramdaman. kapag nakatingin ako sa mukha mo, hindi ko na maalala ung masasayang memories natin”.
It broke my gal bf’s heart big time.
When I slept over in her place, she just can’t stop talking about him.
How they were, what they have, and what should have been.
I remembered a forwarded text message that I received.
It says “I hope that I will find someone to love whose heart has been broken so he/she won’t break mine ’cause he/she knows what its like to have their hearts smashed into pieces”.
I guess this wasn’t always the case then.
Maybe that one person who had his heart broken once never really put up with his losses
And then, he mutated into a heartbreaker.
Is this what happened to my kuya bespren? How sad.
He’ll never know what he has till it’s gone.
In this modern era, infidelity is indeed a fad.
I’ve overheard one of my colleagues boasting that he had 4 secret relationships while he’s going steady with his girlfriend.
Amazing isn’t it? I wonder how he could possibly sleep with his girl knowing that he’s got a soiled hand.
He said that his girl doesn’t know anything about it so it should be alright.
So goes the cliché ‘what you don’t know won’t hurt you”.
People are indeed rational, don’t you think?
