From Our Readers: "I Can Never Call Him Mine"
I've been hiding these feelings for a long time. Even my friends don't know that I have fallen for you already.
I always see you on the campus. We'd walk past each other. And sadly, that is where everything ends. No smile, no hello, no anything. Why would you even smile at me, right? You won't even approach me and I won't even dare approach you. I'm definitely out of your league. I'm not the type of girl that you want. I'm just this girl who's only talent is writing things. Yes, I do write stories and poems. I don't even know how to play any sport. While you're this simple yet charming basketball player, the star of our campus.
We don't fit in each other's worlds.
But I'm still hoping. I'm still hoping that one day you would notice me. That one day I would fit in your circle of friends. I hope one day I could be the girl whom you can call "mine," the girl that you're proud to talk about to your family and friends. The girl you would want to spend most of your free time with.
I wish I could be your cuddle buddy, the one to wipe off your sweat every time you have a game, your number one fan. And I'm willing to be your shoulder to cry on. I'm willing to be your diary. I will never get tired listening to you, I promise.
I want to be your "usap tayo kasi miss na kita" in this world full of "sige, bukas na lang." I want to be the girl you'll never get tired of. I want to be your coffee buddy, your partner in crime, your everything. And most especially, I want to be the girl that you are afraid to lose.
But I can't be that girl now. I can never be yours now that you have her. Some say you're lucky that you have her, but I do believe that she's luckier to have you; she has every girl's dream guy.
Some say you're lucky that you have her, but I do believe that she's luckier to have you; she has every girl's dream guy.
I do know that we're from the opposite sides of our world. I know that I can never have you but if we cross the the same path someday, I'm still looking forward to give us a try. For now, thank you for the heartbreak.
