Were you once framed for a crime?

Not one but two,

arson

and

vandalism?


How could you come home and look your mamma in the face?

She

hasn't

spoken

a

word

Since you came home.


How did you handle the looks on the town's faces?

They blamed you.

You're the town bad boy.

It must have been you,

Everyone's been waiting for the day you'd be hauled in.


Have you ever gone to your knees to thank a man?

A man who believes you're guilty, but believes it was the right thing to let the charges slide.

He nodded,

tried to smile

but his lips

couldn't

form

the slight lifted

line

of a smile.

He couldn't,

You ruined his life in his eyes.


Have you ever

seen someone

so worthless and

shallow it made

you sick and you

couldn't stand a

word she said

because it was

full of selfish

lies?


Then as you spent

months with this

physco evil bitch

you start to realize

you

actually

care

about her life and

the problems that

are trying to tear

her apart and are

actually

succeeding.

How do you manage this?


You go to her

try to ease her

pain even though

you don't understand

said problems that are

conflicting her is such a

way that you are more clueless

than you ever were before.

What do you do then with both feet in your mouth?


Her best friend helps you,

she followed you

our the door even

though you could

both end up in

more trouble.

She moves past

you and hugs the

crying girl you were

trying to comfort.


It's that moment

when you notice

she's the most

beautiful girl you

had ever seen in

your life and you

are having trouble

moving your feet

so you can get the

hell out of there

because you're afraid

you'll say something you

will regret.

What

can

you

possibly

do

with

that

mess?


And it doesn't matter because there are million reason she doesn't like you like,

your shaggy hair,

you're poor,

no one likes you,

you were almost convicted,

you're a smart ass,

you don't talk to people

and

when

you

do

everyone

wishes

you

hadn't.

This is why she doesn't like you.

And it doesn't matter,

because you don't like her.

Right?


Have you ever

stood next to

the girl you are

convinced you're

in love with and

watch her fawn

over another guy

and if that wasn't

the worst of it she

starts asking you

for advice and the

whole thing just

makes you want

to crawl under a

rock and die?


Is what I swore to myself the day she came over,

We were supposed to focus on babysitting,

But it ended up with us baking cookies,

Laughing at

me

her

ourselves

each other.

We talked about

serious things

boring things

trivial things

important things

everything.

As she walked out the door,

I knew that I would have

her maybe as a friend for now

maybe as girlfriend later and

maybe just maybe I may have

her as a wife forever.


Tell me

has this ever happened to you?
