From Our Readers: "Maybe We Shouldn't Be Friends Anymore"

We should just stop it here.

Maybe we should stop being friends.

It occurred to me that no matter how much I deny the truth, it explodes suddenly out of my mind and out of my mouth. No matter how much I try to hide it, the truth frees itself through the little things, through the little gestures. And the truth will surely hurt us—it will end the 2 AM conversations, the inside jokes, and our pinky promises that we'll be there through the worst of times.

The truth will surely hurt us—it will end the 2 AM conversations, the inside jokes, and our pinky promises that we'll be there through the worst of times.

Maybe it was the depth of your dark brown eyes or your tousled hair. Maybe it was your deep voice that keeps telling me, "I'll be with you, even if it's you and me against the world." Or maybe, after all, it was your own messy self that was damaged when you're the one who tried to fix me when you can't even fix yourself. But whatever the reason is, I want you to know the truth. The truth is, I have fallen in love you.

I have fallen like gravity has let go of this universe. Every piece of me crashed, all bones shattered. I have fallen in love like all the planets in space collided together, comets firing, meteors crashing to the ground, and everything happening all at once. I have fallen in love with you with every part of me, and I would love you until I have nothing left, making something out of those nothings just to put your dismantled self together.

I know sometimes, it's hard for me to read you, from all those torn pages, and scars marked upon your heart. But please remember whether it's the days when your laughter manifests the most ecstatic sounds or when you question your whole existence, when you are too oblivious that you are filled with so much appreciation. I will love you when you are still a supernova, bursting with your flames. I will love you even when you are a black hole, when everything seems to ache.
